Crynodeb

Bryan Robertson curated a number of exhibitions of international significance during his time as Director of the Whitechapel Art Gallery (1952-1968) and is renowned for bringing the work of American abstract expressionist painters Lee Krasner, Morris Louis, Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and others to London's East End. In 1961, the same year as the Rothko exhibition, Robertson staged Recent Australian Painting, a survey exhibition curated with the help of Hal Missingham of AGNSW. Bernard Smith has been an outspoken critic of this exhibition, claiming that Robertson's curatorial leaning was towards primitivism. In Impact of the Modern, Simon Pierse examines the validity of this assertion, exploring modernism and internationalism in relation to the reception of Australian contemporary painting in London in the early nineteen-sixties.
