A tribute to portraiture, as well as the artists and sitters, Archie 100: A Century of the Archibald Prize marks 100 years of Australia’s oldest and most-loved annual portraiture award.

Curator Natalie Wilson unearths fascinating stories behind more than 100 works representing every decade. Arranged thematically, these works reflect not just how artistic styles and approaches to portraiture have changed over time but, importantly, how the Archibald Prize reflects our society.

Resulting from many years of searching for lost portraits, Archie 100 includes paintings from the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ collection as well as works from libraries, galleries and museums across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, and private Australian and international collections. Some have not been exhibited since they were first exhibited in the Archibald Prize.

Featuring illustrations and accompanying text for each portrait, Archie 100 also includes a fascinating essay by Wilson on her quest to find Archibald portraits from the last 100 years, a timeline of Archibald Prize landmarks, fabulous facts and figures and an index of artists and sitters.
