Morning, Yarragon siding Theme: The Land

Artist: Jeffrey SMART
Birth/Death: 1921

Title: Morning, Yarragon siding

Credit Line: Private collection, Melbourne

Jeffrey Smart is Australia's most celebrated expatriate artist. A typical Smart painting has an atmosphere of intrigue and anticipation, as though we are looking at a single frame of a movie. Morning, Yarragon siding was inspired by a ramshackle shed on a railway platform, seen by the artist while he was driving through the Victorian countryside.
