Mirka Mora is one of Melbourne’s best known and loved artists. As The M Collection, the M being for Melbourne, we felt that a painting by Mirka was an important inclusion in our collection.
Having recently celebrated her 80th birthday, the gorgeous Mirka was delighted that this painting returned to the gallery for inclusion in an exhibition to celebrate her important milestone birthday.
Mirka Mora’s CV is long and impressive. Since she and her husband George immigrated from France in the 1950’s, she has had over 35 solo shows including a major retrospective of her work in 2000 at Heide Museum of Modern Art. Her numerous public art works include mosaic murals at Flinders Street Station and St Kilda Pier and a painted tram. Australia Post has used her designs for Christmas stamps.
She is in numerous public collections including the NGV, National Gallery in Canberra, Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, Heide Museum of Modern Art to name a few as well as many private collections both in Australia and overseas.
