Sir Arthur Streeton’s unseen etchings were exhibited in Mar – April of 2017
Due to the everflowing enquiries about Sir Arthur Streeton’s unpublished etchings and the Streeton Prints exhibition, we have collated all the information in a single post.
The posthumous prints can be viewed at the gallery or online.
Geelong Advertiser – Sir Arthur Streeton Exhibition in Queenscliff, Neos Kosmos – Unpublished etchings of Australian artist Sir Arthur Streeton brought to life, Print Council of Australia’s Q&A, Queenscliff Herald, The Rip Rumour, and The Weekend Australian – Into The Light – The Lost Streetons.
The Streeton family members decided to edition 50 prints (plus five test proofs) of the 11 plates that we were able to successfully restore.
Sir Arthur Streeton’s copper and zinc plates and one full test proof set of etchings and are now with the National Gallery of Australia.
The prints have been numbered by William Streeton, Sir Arthur Streeton’s grandson, who also signed the reverse of each impression. A letter of authenticity is included with any purchase. The prints have been valued by Timothy Abdallah, Menzies Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers.
QG&W has the great pleasure in presenting this exhibition of never previously published etchings by Sir Arthur Streeton (posthumously printed by Theo Mantalvanos at QG&W).
Together with the 11 etchings, QG&W will exhibit the discovered zinc and copper plates, initial proofs and other related works kindly loaned from the Streeton family members.
Streeton Prints aims to demonstrate the legacy of an artist such as Sir Arthur Streeton. Nine resident artists will work in the gallery to show their influence, while others create contemporary works especially for the exhibition.
The exhibition will be made possible with the support and collaboration of the Streeton family members and QG&W represented artists (by residency): Joel Wolter, Philip Davey, Emmy Mavroidis, Adam Nudelman, Amanda Firenze, Michelle Joy Caithness, Soula Mantalvanos, Andrew Weatherill and James Pasakos
