Grace Crowley was a leading figure in the development of modernism in Australia. Born in rural New South Wales in 1890, Crowley's life and art intersected with some of the major movements in twentieth century art.
Crowley's long artistic journey over five decades from painter of traditional landscapes to avant-garde abstracts was extraordinary. While Crowley is still best known for her cubist paintings of the 1920s and 1930s, Grace Crowley: Being Modern includes works that have never before been exhibited and reveals the full extent of Crowley's contribution to Australian art.
