From Southwold to Alice Springs: Selected Works from the Collection of Robert Cripps

Magdalene College

From Southwold to Alice Springs: Selected works from the Collection of Robert Cripps, showcases a small snapshot of the paintings, drawings and engravings acquired over many years by a remarkable collector, reflecting both his deep roots in the countryside and coast of East Anglia and his championing of the indigenous art and artists of his adopted Australian home.

For the landscapes of Norfolk and Suffolk, the Exhibition ranges from the early nineteenth-century art of the ‘Norwich School’, through Harry Becker’s scenes of rural life, to British impressionism and post-impressionism, and modern realist works. For Australia, the Exhibition displays examples of Lionel Lindsay’s engravings, the vibrant watercolours of the Hermannsburg School, and modern pictorial responses to the indigenous peoples’ dreaming landscapes of the continent’s arid core.
