‘This catalogue was published for Nangara, the Australian Aboriginal art exhibition from the Ebes collection at Stichting Sint-Jan, Brugge March 9-June 23,1996 (180 works). Nangara is a collection of outstanding Australian Aboriginal art representing over 170 of the most important artists. A few hundred early works were the source to create the foundation stock for a commercial art gallery in Melbourne, the Aboriginal Gallery of Dreamings, those considered irreplaceable were chosen to form a personal collection not be sold but for exhibition, education and visual pleasure only. The late ’80’s proved to be the perfect timing and the Ebes Collection grew rapidly resulting in the first overseas exhibitions in the early ’90’s.’ – Trove.
