sketches (and paintings)
While relatively unknown as an artist in Australia, it turns out Power was one of our most successful and accomplished expatriate painters of the interwar years.
Happy discovery indeed.
|Danseurs (Dancers) (1933-34) - J.W. Power|
|Flowers (c. 1933) - J.W. Power|
|Paysage (Landscape) (1934) - J.W. Power|
Love the colours and how one has to look twice to 'see'.
Interestingly, I found his sketchbooks just as intriguing as his paintings. A glimpse of what could / will be.
(Like this blog, I hope.)

Or see it yourself at the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne (15 November 2014 - 1 March 2015).
