About this Curation

In honour of Canberra's cartoon exhibition, we're looking more closely at the power of line in art. A single bold stroke can suggest many things in an artwork, from the outline of a figure to a horizon in the distance. Browse a selection of artworks that use line to create form and direct the eye.
