Exhibition introduction: Frederick McCubbin—Whisperings in wattle boughs

4 September to 28 November

Victorian Curriculum all levels—The Arts, Humanities 

Bookings

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the Gallery’s exhibition Frederick McCubbin—Whisperings in wattle boughs, an exhibition that celebrates the most significant work to be acquired by Geelong Gallery in its first year of collecting in 1900. McCubbin’s A bush burial 1890 was purchased through public subscription and in the Gallery’s 125th anniversary year we celebrate this exceptional acquisition and moment in the history of the Gallery by bringing A bush burial into dialogue with a tightly focussed selection of other iconic McCubbin works in which he elaborates and redefines the Australian bush and the human subjects within it.
