2006 ARCHIBALD PRIZE

Josonia Palaitis' portrait of Justice Michael Kirby has been selected for this year's Archibald Prize.  It is her sixth time hung in this prestigious exhibition since 1979.

This initial inspiration for the portrait's composition was Kirby's admiration of a portrait by the Spanish artist Goya which hangs in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam.

The Archibald Prize is showing at the Art Gallery of NSW until May 28 2006.
