Allegro

Yvonne Audette was born in Sydney in 1930 and, although being a painter all her life, has taken a long time to be recognised for what she is - perhaps Australia's most dynamic and exciting abstract expressionist.

This tapestry has been commissioned by the Lyceum Club, Melbourne.

The Lyceum Club (Melbourne), established in 1912, was modelled on the London Lyceum Club. Membership is restricted to women graduates and other women who have distinguished themselves in art, music, literature, philanthropy or public service.The Lyceum Club has a fine art collection including works purchased throughout the 100 years existence of the club.
