New Beginnings: Classic Paintings From the Corrigan Collection of 21st Century Aboriginal Art


"For more than 40 years leading businessman Pat Corrigan has been one of Australia’s largest and most significant arts benefactors. A strong supporter of the innovative and of living artists, post-2000 Pat turned his eye towards Aboriginal art. The vibrancy of the art and the lives of the artists appealed – so a new collection was started. In New Beginnings, Pat Corrigan and his family reveal some of the works from this collection."
