Charles Blackman 'Still Life'

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.

'Still Life' features an indoor plant that will never perish. Recognisably Blackman, it is a stylish and simple still-life from inside the artist’s house. 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.

'Still Life' can be seen as a study for the more significant painting, 'Bottled and Blue Vase' (pictured above).
