Melbourne Paintings (1950's - 1980's)

Ends this Saturday 22 April

A master of light and colour Ludmilla Meilerts painted an ongoing series of highly expressive 'Melbourne Paintings' from the 1950s to 1980s.

After arriving in Australia from post-war Europe in 1948, Meilerts turned her focus to the heart of mid-century Melbourne. She made it's back streets and waterways an important part of her work and the colour and vitality of her urban paintings brought a European art sensibility that set her apart from other Australian artists of the time, instilling in her paintings a unique and personal expression of her new homeland.

Geelong Picture Framers
is a busy custom-framing workshop located upstairs at Metropolis Gallery. We specialise in the conservation framing of paintings and works on paper, sentimental family treasures and memorabilia. We stretch canvases and also frame everything from posters, photography and paintings to football jumpers and other 3D objects.

We’ll help select a frame that not only enhances the work: it’s important that the frame, matt, backing board and glass help to preserve it for many years to come.
