‘Margaret Olley’
A Generous Life
Jun 2019 - Oct 2019

‘A Generous Life’ examines the legacy and influence of much-loved Australian artist, Margaret Olley (1923–2011) who spent a formative part of her career in Brisbane. A charismatic character, she exerted a lasting impact on many artists as a mentor and friend and was also a muse for artists including William Dobell and Jeffrey Smart.

Featuring Collection works (listed below) as well as works on loan, the exhibition profiles a life that was immersed in art – her own and those she supported.

‘Margaret Olley: A Generous Life’ was on display form 15 June to 13 October 2019, showing simultaneously with ‘Quilty’.
