Anne Hall was part of the Heide circle, which included Charles Blackman, Sidney Nolan and Hall’s husband John Perceval. Like them she pursued a Figurative Expressionist style, smudging objective and subjective truths. In a way unique to her however, she cuts to the nucleus of her subject, laying bare their soul.

‘The Young Punks (Diptych)’ is a masterful work, composed of two canvas panels. Two men fill the frame, their faces distorted and connection unstated. Intense, unkept and thick with paint, Hall’s portrait is captivating, a vestige of rock and roll culture told in vivid colours.

Like Joy Hester and Mirka Mora, Hall forged a compelling female voice in an otherwise male dominated space. That her career was at times overshadowed by her marriage is a testament to the era’s issues with gender parity. Now, collected by The National Gallery of Australia, the Ian Potter Museum and Geelong Gallery, her absence is being redressed.

For collectors of Modernist Australian art and those searching for a unique insight into the Antipodean movement, Hall is a vital find. Secure this intriguing 1960s oil on canvas before the moment passes.
