Public lecture
Boy With A Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo: a colonial art mystery.
Presented by Robin Walsh
Wednesday 15 August 1-2pm
The provenance for this painting now in the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA) has been contested ground since it first appeared at public auction in 1984. When was it painted? Who was the artist? Who is the child in the portrait? Why is he dressed in black? What is the significance of the cockatoo?
Robin Walsh will discuss the range of possibilities and suggest some surprising interpretive solutions.
