Art Gallery of New South Wales - Archive: Darkness & Light: Caravaggio and his World Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1571-1610) arrived in Rome around 1592 to seek his fortune as a painter. In the 'eternal city' he emerged as the leader of a new artistic era, helping shape the 'baroque', instigating a revolution in style. In 1606 he fled to escape a murder charge and in July 1610 he died whilst returning to Rome in hope of a pardon. Fruitful corsage, bridal bouquet, lingering veils, (1983) by Susan Norrie During the 1980s Susan Norrie rapidly became one of Australia’s most prominent painters. Her considerable technical ability was matched with an intellectual inquiry into the nature of painting after modernism. Along with many other postmodern painters, Norrie had an ambivalent relationship to painting: as was remarked upon at the time, her well-painted images, increasingly slick surfaces and elegant compositions deliberately set out to both seduce and repel. Early works such as ‘Fruitful corsage, bridal bouquet, lingering veils’ 1983, exhibited in Australian Perspecta 1983, have a deliberately feminine sensibility and subject matter as they both draw on, and mark a departure from, the ‘central core’ imagery of 1970s feminist artists.

A brief history of portraiture - Fabulous Noble From Pharaohs and Emperors, to the royals and the nobles, to the bourgeoisie and the celebrities, and now to you. The 21st century is yet to be defined by a style of portraiture but at Fabulous Noble we believe that contemporary portraits will be defined by new media; much in the same way that the art world has developed. We believe that the potential for outmost creativity and excellence resides in illustration and design.

Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes 2013 Education resource Online education kit available Visiting the exhibition Hi, My art practise is based upon two simple things. Paper and clay. I create and kiln fire paper clay sculptures, and carve compressed paper sculptures. My ceramic paperclay work is an attempt to illustrate this on-going interest in the organisation of the arts and crafts, and society. I am inspired by architecture and local plants (see 6 February 2008 entry in my blog), while trying to suggest the cycles, rigidities and dynamic nature of our society, and myself.

View of an Interior, or The Slippers (traditional title, given in the 19th century) From 1839-42 to 1877-83, this painting bore Pieter de Hooch's monogram with the not unlikely date of 1658. Contemporary with the early work of de Hooch and Vermeer, it was formerly attributed to each but is quite distinct from the latter's experiments. Alluding - as does the Ter Borch-inspired picture in the background - to the vain and gallant pastimes of the absent mistress of the house, this is a subtly moralistic piece, a fascinating exercise in perspective, and a painting of poetic calm. Perspective and poetry

Samuel van Hoogstraten Painter and writer, Hoogstraten is best remembered for his experiments in perspective. His perspective box, 'A Peepshow', is the best surviving example of this aspect of his art. His preoccupation with perspective may have been stimulated by his contact with Carel Fabritius when they were both students of Rembrandt in Amsterdam.
