Andrew Sayers Memorial Lecture

‘It’s yours, with love’

Friday 29 June
Tim Bonyhady, 2015 Andrew Sayers AM
Tim Bonyhady, 2015 Andrew Sayers AM

In 2015 Andrew Sayers painted Tim Bonyhady’s portrait, showing him on a Viennese chair, and gave the painting to him. For all their immersion in Australian art history, neither Andrew nor Tim realised there was a remarkable precursor to Tim’s portrait, painted in Melbourne more than 125 years before. In this lecture, Tim will examine the connections between this precursor and Andrew’s painting of him which was first exhibited in the 2015 Archibald Prize and has since been on show in the National Portrait Gallery.

Beginning with drinks and light refreshments, the lecture will be followed by Q&A.
