Curated by Sharon Tassicker Scratching the Surface: A selection of works from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection gives visitors the chance to engage with some of her best-loved works from a very personal collection of Australian art. 

The works trace how one of most acclaimed private collections of Australian art was built - from 1968 when Janet and Robert Holmes à Court purchased their first works from the Darlington Arts and Crafts Gallery in the Perth Hills, until today. The exhibition features 70 works, which include paintings, ceramics, sculptures, drawings and textiles. 

Publication

The exhibition coincides with the release of Muse: A Journey through an Art Collection written by Janet Holmes à Court about her passion for art and for collecting. Published by UWA Publishing, available for $65.00
