Fred Williams in the You Yangs brings together the ground-breaking paintings, drawings and etchings that represent the turning point in Fred Williams’s art. Williams started working in the You Yangs in 1962. It is his work of this period that defined what is commonly considered his ‘classic’ interpretation of the Australian landscape. This exhibition reveals Williams’s enduring fascination with the You Yangs as a recurring subject (among others) for his painting throughout the 1960s to the late 1970s, and surveys in marvellous depth the artist’s working method.

 

Fred Williams in the You Yangs focusses on the turning point in Fred Williams’s vision of the Australian landscape.
