It is 'a once-in-a-life-time opportunity' to view Arthur Boyd iconic, previously unseen ‘Lost Bride' circa 1955 that pre-dates the artist original Bride series. The 'Lost Bride' painting was concealed on two pieces of board, screwed to the base of Arthur Boyd’s art-trolley, and discovered totally by chance, by his son Jamie Boyd. Despite of the astonishing circumstances, the ‘Lost Bride' painting has survived almost six decades, now for the first time on public viewing (NFS). In 2012 Arthur Boyd ‘Bride' fetch $1.68 million.
The Boyd artistic dynasty began in 1886 with the marriage of Emma Minnie Boyd à Beckett (1858-1936) and Arthur Merric Boyd (1862-1940). Emma Minnie Boyd, lively, beautiful, cultivated and compassionate was a successful painter, married another highly regarded painter of his day, Arthur Merric Boyd and become the founders of the Boyd artistic family. They settled at Brighton Melbourne and had five children including William Merric Boyd (1888-1959) who become father of Arthur Boyd 1920-1999, David Boyd 1924-2011, Guy Boyd 1923-1988). Now the only son of Arthur Boyd (1920-1999) Jamie Boyd (1948), represented in collections around the world, including Queen Victoria Museum Gallery England, The Tavistock Centre London and National Gallery of Victoria is the most important living artist of the Boyd family.
'A Century of Boyd' press & Exhibition Reviews:
The enviable ‘A Century of Boyd’ collection is too seldom seen in Australia. It’s rare to be able to amalgamate the collection of such significance. Rarely seen away from London, Australian masterpieces are now in Galeria Aniela fine art gallery and Sculpture Park, the only venue in Australia to proudly boast the most inspiring exhibition. The collection of impeccable provenance and quality, feature over 100 original artworks including paintingsand bronzes from the private collection in London of the Boyd family.The exhibition presents a rare perspective, personal and revealing, that kept shaping Boyd’s artists own legacy. It is ‘tour de force’ of the most renowned Boyd dynasty artists and can be considered a new reference point for their work.
Ceaselessly innovative and prolific, the collection embodies the creative spirit of the modern age, yet for all the modernity of the chosen artists, is deeply connected with the art of the past. Although mostly portray Australian landscape Boyd’s artists never abandoned the figure and remained masters of painting as well as bronze sculpture. The collection lays bare personal passions, desires and qualms, as well as the anxieties of the time and the fragility and resilience of human life embracing some of the most iconic series that include ‘Bride’, ‘Lovers’ ‘Europa’ and ‘Nudes’.
Heide Circle artists like Arthur Boyd and David Boyd played a key role in the Antipodean’s in the late 1950’s, warning of the gullible adoption of overseas fashion, American abstract expressionism in particular, they shaped Australian art.
A master in her discipline Lenore Boyd (1953) creates inspiring bronzes that we are in love with. Apprenticed in her father studio, Guy Boyd (1923-1988) famous Australian sculptor, Lenore has deep understanding of the human form and great appreciation its beauty and during past forty years produced a prolific body of work.
No family has collectively made such a major contribution to the arts in Australia as the Boyd’s. In fact, the Boyd's dynasty has been synonymous with the arts. Their contribution to the contemporary Australian art as well as our cultural life is significant. The Boyd artistic dynasty is the most successful family in the arts in the world.
The gallery was chosen to host the show due to the gallery owner Aniela Kos, long and affectionate relationship with Arthur Boyd and his family.
