The Klytie Pate collection: At Beleura House & Garden


Emma Busowsky Cox is a curator at Bendigo Art Gallery. Her recently acclaimed exhibition Daughters of the Sun: Christian Waller & Klytie Pate tells the story of Christian Waller, celebrated Australian printmaker of the Art Deco era, and her niece, the pioneering ceramic artist, Klytie Pate. Pate came to live under Waller’s charge as a young teenager and, with her aunt’s guidance, became one of Australia’s foremost studio potters of the 20th century. John Tallis (from Beleura House) was a friend and became an avid collector of Klytie’s work.

Emma is thrilled to present an illustrated lecture at Beleura House & Garden which is home to the ‘Klytie Pate Treasury’, a dedicated gallery space developed by Anthony Knight in 2015.
