Albert’s Story

Friday, November 7, 2014 to Saturday, November 29, 2014

Vincent Namatjira’s series of thirteen paintings titled Albert’s Story, explores the life of the extraordinary man and painter Albert Namatjira. This series is, by all accounts, the first time that Albert’s life from youth to death has been depicted in one complete series. The fact that it is being told by one of Albert’s direct descendants makes this body of work even more poignant: it is at once historical and personal.

This series of paintings is Vincent Namatjira's first solo exhibition. All thirteen paintings have been acquired by the Queensland Art Gallery.
