Sir Hans Heysen, one of Australia’s greatest landscape painters, brought the Australian landscape to life in his famous artworks through his masterful draughtsmanship and breathtaking palette. He fought for the preservation of the natural environment with a passion that preserved many gums from being felled for firewood and fence posts. Visit his estate, The Cedars, for an exclusive, curated tour of the property and a talk by Heysen’s eldest grandson, Dr Peter Heysen, on his grandfather’s leadership in both the art world and in conservation. A must for anyone interested in art history, environmentalism and the history of conservation in Australia. Bookings essential.
