This extraordinary exhibition features historic watercolours from the South Australian Museum’s collection by the earliest Hermannsburg watercolourists including the celebrated Albert Namatjira, alongside contemporary watercolour works created by their descendants revealing the artists’ deep political and ecological concerns for their changing Country.
