AUSTRALIAN, b. 1927

Portrait of Evelyn Chapman ( in red hat), c. 1930s

oil on linen, 45 x 50cm

signed front LRC  verso - linen prepared by C Robertson & Co

Gift of the Artist, 2009

Inspired by her artistic family life in London, Thalben-Ball was encouraged and supported in art by her musician father, artist grandmother as well as her mother, Evelyn Chapman (1888-1961). Chapman was an accomplished artist who, upon moving to Australia, studied under Antonio Dattilo-Rubbo. Her portrait of Rubbo was purchased by the Art Gallery of NSW in 1920. Evelyn Chapman is also represented in the Australian War Memorial collection (AWM).

‘In 1918, only a few weeks after the end of the First World War, Chapman travelled to the battlefields of France with her father, who was attached to the New Zealand War Graves Commission. She was the first Australian female artist to have the opportunity to depict the devastation of the battlefields of the western front. (AWM catalogue entry)


Pamela Thalben-Ball is also represented in the AWM collection with a portrait of Captain Reg Saunders, 1978, the first Aboriginal commissioned officer in the Australian defence forces.


In London, Pamela Thalben-Ball studied at the Heatherley Art School under Frederic Whiting and Iain MacNab from 1946-50. In 1960, she visited Australia for the first time, and as she travelled overland she began to notice the Australian countryside and the gum trees, and realised the clarity of the light could change her palette.  I was enamoured of the marvellous reflected light under the boughs of the gums and the masses of delicate colours.


Pamela’s strong and sustained interest in portraiture is evident throughout her career. Her 1993 portrait of Pittwater resident and world renowned sailor, Kay Cottee, is in the National Portrait Gallery collection.


My mother, who was a far better painter than I shall ever be, said that one should always do some painting every day, but use as few colours as possible. In fact, you can do an extremely colourful portrait using ivory black, titanium white, yellow ochre and cadmium red
(Australian Artist, August 2004).


Thalben-Ball has held numerous solo exhibitions in England and Australia and has been hung in the Archibald Prize for portrait painting and the Portia Geach Memorial Prize exhibition.

An Australian painter and art teacher who was born in Narrabri NSW, and attended schools in Walcha and Armidale. At 17 he served in WWII in a tank regiment in New Guinea, Bouganville and Rabaul. On his return he joined the Commonwealth Rehabilitation Training Scheme and attended East Sydney Technical College to retrain as an artist. He graduated with the College medal in 1950 and then travelled overseas for two years gaining employment in London’s National Gallery as a guard.

On his return to Australia in 1953 he took up a teaching position at the South Australian School for Arts and Crafts until 1955 when he returned to Sydney and taught at East Sydney Technical College until 1976, becoming Head of the School of Art and Design in his final year. Thompson is represented in major public galleries including the Australian National Gallery the state galleries of Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia as well as several regional galleries and Artarmon and Savill commercial galleries. His murals at Australia House in London, Sydney airport, Parramatta City Council were commissions in the 1960s and 70s.


Retiring to Braidwood he painted a wonderful trilogy based on the Annunciation, of which the MAGAM has acquired one of the key paintings. His aim was to depict a religious theme within an Australian setting clearly influenced by European painting of the early Flemish and Venetian Schools, as noticed by Lloyd Rees who admired this series of paintings. Thompson also delighted in using the traditional egg tempera medium in his mural commissions throughout his career. He also, like Rees enjoyed painting both the natural and built environment with wonderful details of buildings, light, shadows and perspective around Southern and inland NSW.


After travelling and continuing to paint he now lives in Newcastle NSW.

Thomson, Nigel

AUSTRALIAN, 1945 – 1999

Tunnel, 1991

Oil on canvas, 130 x 282cm

Signed LRC, oil, dated '91'.

Purchased by the Gallery with the assistance of the Lady Askin Bequest, 1993

 

Nigel Thomson was a prominent artist and teacher who lived in Manly from 1979 till his untimely death in 1999. A plaque set in the garden near the gallery forecourt commemorates his life. It sits next to a sandstone sculpture called Inspiration (Tale 1), which, for his family, students and friends, was felt to be a fitting place for the artist and teacher held in such high regard, and who also played a role in the life of this gallery. 

In the early 1980s, Nigel Thomson established the Manly Art Group in a response to what he saw as a lack of professionalism among local art groups and which, under his direction, continued to meet until shortly before his death. Thomson won several awards and honours in Australia, including the Archibald Prize twice, in 1983 and 1997, and the Sulman Prize twice, also in 1983, and again in 1986.

Manly Art Gallery & Museum mounted a major touring exhibition of paintings by Nigel Thomson in 2004. In the exhibition catalogue, curator John McDonald wrote: ‘He was a dogged individual, who set out to identify and undermine the aesthetic, social and political clichés that dominate our everyday lives… Thomson was a thinker, with broad, humanitarian sympathies, fired by a slow-burning anger at human hypocrisy’ (Nigel Thomson: Critical Realist, p.5). A man of integrity and compassion, Thomson was also committed to local and national issues, such as Aboriginal reconciliation and the environment.  

In 1993, Manly Art Gallery & Museum purchased a large work by Thomson called Tunnel through the Lady Askin Bequest, pictured here. The painting is widely appreciated as one of his key works which draws together many aspects of his ideas and art practice.

0143

Unknown Artist (attributed to Anibale Carracci 1566 - 1609)

Ceres, year unknown

Oil on canvas, 176 x 107cm

Gift of P. S. Garling,  1947

Annibale Carracci was a leading Italian Baroque painter.  He was born in Bologna and opened a painter’s studio there with his accomplished relatives, brother Agostino and cousin Ludovico.  His career shows eclectic themes in his painting: landscapes, genre scenes and portraits, including self portraits.  His reputation is derived largely from his tendency often to have landscapes overwhelm his figures and for his “invention” of the caricature.

Ceres was the Roman goddess of agriculture (i.e. cereal) and of motherly relations.  She was the daughter of Saturn and Ops, sister of Jupiter, mother of Proserpina by Jupiter and sister of Juno, Vesta, Neptune and Pluto.  She is often depicted with a basket of flowers and fruit and a garland of corn.  She was adopted by the Romans in 496 BC during a devastating famine.

The dominating scale of the figure of Ceres is unusual in a classical pastoral scene with its characteristic elements of landforms, lake, waterfall and evocative sky.  Ceres is in her dual role as goddess of agriculture by holding the sheaf of grain and of motherly relations by watching over the child, perhaps her daughter Proserpine.  The fact that her face is half in shade is curious but the light is directed to her breast, her arms and leg and to the child, perhaps to emphasize fruitfulness.

This painting was recently cleaned and needs some conservation attention, and curators from state galleries will be invited to inspect it to see if it is worthy of international research.  There are notable engravings and lithographs by Carracci in Australian museums, but only two of his paintings, both at the National Gallery of Victoria.  They are The Holy Family (c.1589) and Pan (c. 1592).

0152

Unknown Artist (attributed to School of Rubens)

Christ and His disciples at Emmaus, year unknown

Oil in wood panel, 89 x 104cm

Not signed not dated. This work has been attributed to the school of Rubens, Peter Paul 1577-1640. This work has not been examined

Gift of P. S. Garling,  1947

Sir Peter Paul Rubens (1577 – 1640) is one of the greatest of all Western artists and the leading Flemish artist of his time.  His long career saw him create art in Flanders (Belgium), Italy, Spain and England.  He was knighted twice: by Philip IV of Spain in 1624 and by Charles I of England in 1630.

Rubens’ prolific output meant that many of his paintings show that only the faces and hands were created by the master and other elements were created by his studio painters and assistants.  Occasionally these are recognized in the attributions, particularly Jacob Jordaens and Frans Snyders.

Rubens’ characteristic style of portraying his figures as strong and fleshy is noticeable in this painting. Note how the strong legs are still distinguishable under the robes.  The animated expression on the central figures is very reminiscent of Jordaens’ style.

The painting depicts the revelatory dinner of Christ and two disciples, one of whom was Cleopas, on the evening of the day of the resurrection.  The disciples invited a stranger to dine with them at Emmaus, near Jerusalem, and only recognized the stranger as Christ when he broke the bread.  This subject was painted many times, most notably by  Carravaggio with his Supper at Emmaus (1601).

While Christ, one disciple and the serving man are shown in traditional robes, the other disciple is dressed in contemporary clothes, including a hat and rolled sleeves.  They are all bare footed and are placed at a table with metallic tableware, within a neoclassical alcove which frames a castle.  The dog in the lower right hand corner was a popular addition to Dutch and Flemish history paintings.  There was a strong northern European tradition of placing Biblical scenes within contemporary settings.

There are three known replicas of this subject from Rubens’ studio, one at the Prado in Madrid and another in Germany.  All show slight variations and curators have certified that only the faces were the work of Rubens.  This work was cleaned and restored at the Art Gallery of NSW over a three year period in the late 1990s, so it can be presumed that if any research were done on it, it proved to be a copy by assistants within Rubens’ school.

Warren, Guy

AUSTRALIAN, b. 1921

Lyrebird Dawn, 2003

acrylic on linen, 122 x 152

Purchased by the Gallery with the assistance of the Theo batten Bequest, 2004

Guy Warren’s work explores the linking of life through the environment- reflected through his divergent experiences of living and traveling in the UK and Australia with extended time spent in Papua New Guinea heavily influencing his work. The recurring themes of environment and ‘civilisation’ have echoed throughout his career with the convergence of politics, geography, climate, landscape and philosophical environment all contributing to his art practice.

 

Lyrebird Dawn represents a significant body of painting work that Warren undertook in the early 2000s with large scale canvases and a dynamic painting technique involving paint brush and rag application of paint to the canvas surface. Warren’s paintings embody a fusion of stark colour palettes with layers of paint and thematic storytelling building upon the canvas foundation.  The common element of these paintings is the connection to environment, reflecting Warren’s fluxus between painting locations in Australian and his background traveling in the Pacific region. These works underpin a consciousness of the environmental and social fragility of contemporary life.

 

“…An interest in landscape and the environment may not be seen as being of prime concern for those working at the cutting edge of art, but issues of identity frequently are. Yet the issue of identity and how that relates to the environment at large-how we relate to and use the land-could well be one of the most important issues of our time.” [1]

 

Warren’s works are represented in collections such as the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of NSW, Art Gallery of South Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Museum and Gallery of the Northern Territory, Queensland Art Gallery, Tasmanian Museum and Gallery and regional collections such as Wollongong Art Gallery, Bendigo, Burnie, Goulburn, Newcastle Regional Gallery.[2]

Hadyn Wilson was born in 1955 in Sydney. He initially studied at the Julian Ashton Art School (1974-75) and then at East Sydney Technical College (1976-77) where his skills and appreciation of the traditions of painting have stood him in good stead throughout his career.

 

In 2007, Manly Art Gallery & Museum presented A Real Allegory, a survey exhibition of works by Hadyn Wilson, whose highly original and mainly figurative paintings, explore historical narratives and allegorical themes in response to contemporary social, environmental and political issues. ‘I use ‘fictional narratives’ as a vehicle for presenting the sometimes very abstract concepts of deep time and our ability to imagine this.’ Hadyn has been a member of the Manly Art Gallery & Museum Society for many years and lives partly in Manly and partly in the Lower Hunter valley region. He was represented in The State of Art: Peace exhibition toured by the Gallery in 2004.

 

His curiosity and passion as an artist has kept him engaged in further study, at the Australian National University’s Institute of Arts (1992) and later in (1993-95) at the College of Fine Arts University of NSW, where he completed his Master of Fine Arts Degree. He has recently completed his PhD studies at the University of Newcastle. His work has been hung in the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes exhibitions at the AGNSW and widely exhibited through various commercial galleries including Access, Brenda May, Metro5 and UTS Galleries. He is currently represented by Brenda May Galleries.
