Australia’s favourite artist John Olsen, in association with Olsen Irwin and Australian Fine Art Editions, is offering the opportunity to own a limited edition Olsen etching for the remarkable price of $1,200. Proceeds from the sale of the work go towards the University of New South Wales’ College of Fine Art, ensuring a bright future for a new generation of artists.
Printed in association with master print maker Michael Kempson, the limited edition etching ‘Life Class’ depicts the various players in the art world. From the cash rich art dealer to the artist’s wife, this satirical piece is typical of Olsen’s wit and humour.
“On the far left you can see the artist with brush in hand, his wife advising him as to an approach. A female water colourist who formerly painted in oils is at front, above her is a contemplative student readying to make a mark. Behind him is an art dealer flush with cash and a muse/painter sizes up the three ‘fallen from grace’ Graces. Completing the print is a conceptual artist who stares at us as he ruminates over his future realisations.”
– John Olsen
