The work of Italian-born artist George Baldessin is like a ballet beneath the eye. Whimsical, poised and surreal, his imagery brought a European sensibility to Australian art, which before then, was largely British influenced. In 'The Dance', this elegance shines, as a figure tragically bends beneath a backdrop of pink and blue.
Baldessin has been honoured with retrospective exhibitions at Heide Museum, the Art Gallery of NSW and alongside Brett Whiteley at the National Gallery of Victoria. He is represented in all regional and many state collections, as well as New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Perhaps however, Baldessin is best known for his sumptuous brass pears, who stand guard at Canberra’s National Gallery of Australia.
