From an impoverished background in Depression-era Sydney, Robert Dickerson became renowned and revered as one of Australia’s most significant figurative painters. MAG&M worked closely with the family of Robert Dickerson to produce the 2018 exhibition Against the Tide, which featured a unique selection of Dickerson’s works from private collections.
