Brett Whiteley is among Australia’s most celebrated artists. He won the Art Gallery of New South Wales's Archibald, Wynne and Sulman prizes several times and achieved a celebrity status here 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 I've 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.
