Curated by Geoffrey Smith, Chairman of Smith & Singer, the exhibition comprises works spanning 44 years of Albert Tucker’s prodigious artistic practice. Each painting has been carefully selected to reflect a cross-section of some of the varied themes and motifs Tucker explored throughout his remarkable career. The exhibition will be open to the public from 1-30 October 2020 in Smith & Singer’s Sydney galleries, at 30 Queen Street, Woollahra.
SALE PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE ALBERT & BARBARA TUCKER FOUNDATION
Each work in the exhibition has been drawn from the personal collection of Albert and Barbara Tucker, including numerous works that have never previously been available for public sale. The proceeds will benefit important social causes, including the initiation of social change which supports the equal treatment and social acceptance of all persons in the community.
Albert Tucker is known as one of Australia’s foremost artists, and as a key figure in the development of Australian modernism. Primarily a figurative painter, his works responded to the world around him and his own life experiences, and they often reflected critically on society.
