Pelican Bouillabaisse I

Artist Statement: Art is not so much talent as character.. it's what you are, the qualities of the person. - John Olsen.

Medium: Mixed media on paper
Dimensions: Image size - 92 x 65 cm (Framed 111 x 83.5cms)
Date: 1979
Condition: Good
Provenance: Bought as “Pelicans at the Lake”, from the catalogue (nb. not Item 3, however is catalogue number 32) from the Festival of Perth of 1980. Inherited family.

CHG Director's Statement: Olsen's work from the Lake Eyre visits and examination with documentation is well acknowledged. This work could be influenced from a visit to the same area in the mid 1970’s.

Central to the composition is the pelican with other details of the landscape supporting the composition. His drawing ability is well exhibited in this composition and is a fine early work. Additionally it is documented in drawing and painting from the 1980’s Festival of Perth where it was 1 of 35 exhibits.
