Iconic Australia artist Ken Done responds to Japanese midget submarines attacking Sydney Harbour during WWII.

 On show 11 April – 31 May 2015

On the night of 31 May 1942, three Japanese midget submarines entered the waters of Sydney Harbour and launched a surprise attack that left an indelible mark on Australia’s history. In 2012, to mark the 70th anniversary of the event, Mosman Art Gallery commissioned artist Ken Done to interpret and respond to this remarkable story. These powerful and evocative paintings are displayed in Lewers House as part of the Home/ Front exhibition suite.

This exhibition is a part of the Autumn exhibition suite and further information can be found within the Home / Front Digital Catalogue.
