Prone Schoolgirl’ is perhaps the most recognisable of Charles Blackman’s Schoolgirl series. Marking a distinct shift in his practice, these images follow a lone student through desolate suburbia. Present are themes of vulnerability, alienation and the loss of innocence - reflective of life in an increasingly urbanised postwar Melbourne. Blackman was also inspired by the murder of thirteen year-old Alma Tirtschke in 1921. Conceived in 1953, this deeply evocative image announced Blackman as a serious artist.

One of Australia’s most iconic artists, Blackman's work speaks to us all. To live with his visual poetry promises to be an ever-enriching experience for you and your family. Celebrate his inimitable legacy with 'Prone Schoolgirl' today.
