The Art of Moonlight

A selling exhibition of paintings and watercolours capturing the beauty and atmospheric effect of moonlight.

Artists like Henry Pether were mesmerised by moonlight. Their landscapes attempted to hold its never-ending incarnations within the boundaries of materiality, circumscribed in paintings and watercolours of pale blue, green and grey hues.

They wanted to celebrate the natural beauty of the moon and the soft glow of moonlight. For many artists and poets, the moon represents an empathetic companion—a depiction of gazing at the moon might suggest tranquil solitude, or wistful longing for a distant friend, or the fleeting nature of love and pleasure.  The moon’s timeless appeal as a source of creative inspiration.
