LLOYD REES (1895 – 1988)
PAINTING FOR SALE IN 2018
THE SUMMIT, MT WELLINGTON, TASMANIA 1971
Oil on Canvas 61 x 92cm
This painting preceeds the drawing ‘The Summit II 1973’ which curators of the Art Gallery of New South Wales have described as ”a visionary work in which drawing and painting are somehow fused”. This 1971 painting truly depicts the (easily accessible by road) mountain top Tasmanian experience of a lifetime. Lloyd himself saw the summit as an “experience of landscape (which) allowed him to glory in all creation as one great unified miracle”.
