From his ‘Golden Era’ for drawing, this work of art comes from a 1965 Rowney Sketchbook and represents a deep dive into Charles Blackman’s practice. It is populated with scenes from his life in London before returning to Australia that year. These impressions are a wink in time - moments of sadness, inspiration or everyday life. Known for its wild greenery, 18th century architecture and as the burial sight for George Eliot and Karl Marx, the London suburb of Highgate is teeming with inspiration. Here, Blackman takes it as his setting, plonking a nude in its tea-house lined streets. Direct from the Blackman Family’s private collection, this work is a rare and fascinating insight into the creative mind of one of Australia’s great artists.
