Home and Away: Exhibiting Australia’s Impressionists in London
Dr Allison Goudie – Home and Away: Exhibiting Australia’s Impressionists in London
In this talk, Dr Allison Goudie, co-curator of the National Gallery’s current exhibition, Australia’s Impressionists, will introduce the exhibition and explore how a consideration of the four artists featured reveals a more nuanced, and more global narrative of the history of Impressionism.
Dr Allison Goudie has contributed to a wide variety of exhibition projects at the National Gallery including Inventing Impressionism: Paul Durand-Ruel and the Modern Art Market, Goya: The Portraits, and the forthcoming Michelangelo & Sebastiano: A Meeting of Minds. Dr Goudie completed her D.Phil. at the University of Oxford in 2014, with a thesis on royal portraiture during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, a subject on which she speaks and publishes frequently. She has previously worked at the BBC and at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice.
