Margaret Olley - A Generous Life

‘A Generous Life’ celebrates the enduring legacy of much-loved Australian artist Margaret Olley (1923–2011). A charismatic character, Olley is a widely recognised still-life and interior painter who drew inspiration from her home and the beauty of everyday objects. She was a significant benefactor to public institutions, and the subject of two Archibald Prize-winning portraits including one painted by Ben Quilty (2011). This major exhibition profiles a life that was vigorously immersed in art — her own and that of those she supported.
