After the death of Albert Namatjira in 1959 the Hermannsburg style of art suffered from neglect. However the last decade has seen a renewed interest in this distinct style, with many galleries and collectors seeking to acquire the best examples. This exhibition showcases an outstanding collection of work by artists skilled in this beautiful style of landscape painting. The artists to be exhibited include Peter Tjutjatja Taylor, Elton Wirri, Douglas Abbott and Lenie and Oscar Namatjira, the second son of Albert Namatjira.
