Event description

Description

This exhibition presents the 24 etchings produced by Arthur Boyd that respond to Porter’s reinterpretation of the 16th century tale of the unicorn left off The Ark in the Biblical Great Flood.

For fifteen years, Arthur Boyd collaborated with poet, Peter Porter, producing between them four significant limited-edition books of prints and poems.

Arthur Boyd, one of Australia’s most significant artists, worked across numerous mediums throughout his career, including printmaking. Boyd's success in London in the early 1960s and throughout the 1970s introduced the opportunity for numerous high profile commissions and for him to undertake collaborations with fellow artists.

For The Lady and The Unicorn, the second project with Peter Porter, Boyd produced 24 bold and evocative etchings in response to Porter’s reinterpretation of the 16th century tale that has inspired musicians, poets, novelists and artists since it’s rediscovery in the 1840s.
