The paintings and drawings Brett Whiteley made in Italy and London during 1960-61 and at Sigean in France in 1962 stamped him as a prodigious young talent. In this period, signpost qualities were established for his future development; warm textures and forms which he gleaned from Italian painting and architecture, terrains of abstraction that excited him in contemporary European and American painters and an enduring recollection of the Australian landscape. They reveal a private, experimental side to Whiteley and are among his best work.
