The richness and beauty of the work of Hilda Rix Nicholas is the focus of a major exhibition at Sydney’s Mosman Art Gallery, 03 May – 13 July 2014.

Hilda Rix Nicholas (1884 –1961) is one of Australia’s most important early twentieth-century women artists. In a key exhibition for 2014, Mosman Art Gallery examines the artist’s early career and the profound influence her experience in Europe had on her art practice in 1920s Australia. It focuses on Hilda’s time spent in France, Tangier and Sydney before, during and post WWI.

Following her 11 years working abroad, Hilda Rix Nicholas returned to Australia where she lived and worked in Sydney's Mosman for four years, painting some of her most charming and capturing work. Her fine-art practice alternated between drawing and painting, landscape and figuration.

Feted as an international artist, Hilda Rix Nicholas received acclaim for her range of paintings and drawings and successfully exhibited in Sydney, Melbourne, and back in London and France in 1925 - where she was elected as an Associate of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts.

Exhibition works are on loan from the public collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales, The Art Gallery of South Australia, Australian War Memorial, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park, Bega Regional Gallery and from JB Hawkins Antiques, Bridget McDonnell Gallery, as well as private collections. A number of key works are on loan from the private collection of the Rix-Wright family.

There is much more to discover on Hilda Rix Nicholas through her beautiful paintings and drawings. Visit Mosman Art Gallery website for details on exhibition talks and workshops - including a Symposium on Sunday 1 June.
