Brett Whiteley is one of Australia’s most celebrated artists. He won the Art Gallery of NSW Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes several times, and his artistic career was bolstered by his celebrity status in Australia and overseas. The subject of this highly collectable original screenprint is Lavender Bay on Sydney Harbour’s north shore.

Lavender Bay was the location of the home studio Brett shared with his wife Wendy and their daughter Arkie. Whiteley said that he liked to have his studio at home because “my best work is usually the last thing Ive done at night, and the first on waking next morning”. Whiteley rendered the views of Sydney Harbour with such a sensual eye and fluid hand that they have found their way into the Australian consciousness.

This work of art, like the harbour itself, is sure to continue to bring inspiration for those that cherish the visual poetry of Brett Whiteley. Contact us for more information about this outstanding opportunity to be the custodian of such a iconic work of art.
