Opening Friday 4 November 2022
Exhibition dates 5 November 2022 – 29 January 2023
Lionel’s Place showcases more than 140 artworks created by Lionel Lindsay, an artist who honed his skills in etching and wood engraving so finely that by 1927 he was hailed as the most internationally successful Australian printmaker of all time. This exhibition showcases the artist’s etchings, wood engravings and watercolours, works on paper rich in visual texture, and depicting scenes from abroad and closer to home, exotic and domestic animals and birds, and the lushness of gardens, floral abundance and portraiture. Lionel’s Place is a Maitland Regional Art Gallery Touring Exhibition.
