Among Australia's most celebrated artists, John Perceval came of artistic age as part of the Angry Penguins. Credited with irreversibly changing the course of Australian art this group, which also included Sidney Nolan and Arthur Boyd, reconfigured bodies, landscapes and life in Australia. In his role Perceval offered breathtaking originality, liveliness and spontaneity. In a flurry of lines, his work - sometimes charming, sometimes disconcerting - engrosses the viewer.

In 'Nude and Bee', he captures a woman in the throngs of spring. With fluttering lines and curves, this print hums beneath the eyes - bringing the levity of new life all year round. Cast in a brilliant bumblebee yellow and by one of Australia's most collectible artists, 'Nude and Bee' is as sweet and seldom as fresh honey.
