In 2021, a National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Collection favourite, Tom Roberts’s Shearing the Rams, 1890, will tour to Wangaratta Art Gallery to coincide with the 130th anniversary of the work’s execution near Corowa, NSW.
The single display of this key work will occur for a limited period of four weeks from late January until late February 2021 and is exclusive to Wangaratta. ‘Shearing the rams, the artist, the painting, a moment in time’ is delivered in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria and is fitting that, in the 130th year since Roberts laid down his last brushstrokes, the painting is to return to the area where it was originally conceived.
