One of Australia's most celebrated artists is the subject of a new exhibition on its way to Sydney after a premiere at Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria. Co-presented by NGV Australia along with the Art Gallery of New South Wales, John Olsen: The You Beaut Country celebrates the incredible work of the eponymous painter, who for more than 50 years has captured the breathtaking Australian landscape in a way that few other artists ever have.

On display at AGNSW from March 10 until June 12, the exhibition is focused primarily on Olsen's output from the 1960s, after the artist spent three years travelling around Europe. Alongside these works visitors will find a number of more recent pieces, including paintings, prints and watercolours.

As always, the exhibition will be complemented by a number of gallery events, including a public conversation with the artist hosted by the Gallery's director Dr Michael Brand, guided tours and artmaking workshops that draw on Olsen's art for inspiration.
