Ramsay, Hugh - National Gallery of Art Australia

Trained in Melbourne, Hugh Ramsay shot to fame after travelling to Paris in 1902 and having four works selected for the New Salon, an achievement almost unheard of in young expatriate circles.
An extraordinarily talented artist, 

life was cut tragically short at the age of 28. Featuring paintings, drawings and works on paper, this exhibition highlights Ramsay’s remarkable insights as a portraitist. The NGA holds the majority of Ramsay’s sketchbooks, which reveal Ramsay’s abilities as a draftsman as well as his charisma and great sense of humour. This exhibition (01.12.2018 - 04.2019) is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue written by Curator Deborah Hart. (Text: National Gallery of Australia)
