At the centre of Australia’s cultural life, Mirka Mora was a creative through and through. Charismatic, intuitive and infinitely imaginative, she embodied her art, leaving an inimitable legacy in her wake.

In this 1964 work, Mora returns to one of her favoured motifs - folklore. Clustered together, her cherubic creatures echo Eastern European fairy tales, angels and ancient mythology. They sit somewhere between sweet and sinister, suggesting that fantasy is not always an easy escape. As a Holocaust survivor, Mora knew this truth acutely.

Pricking at the artist’s inner-world, Angel Face is second in character only to its creator. It is a treasure for collectors of modern art, fans of Mora and her legacy, or just the dreamer within. Go on, add some joie de vivre to your collection.
