This painting oozes sophistication. Its golden yellow and earth tones radiate warmth, representing its namesake with rare accuracy. Dried fallen leaves lay on the desert floor only to be awakened by the gentle breeze, stirring and scattering them across the land.

A rare piece on the market. This painting is an early Leaves and a stunning representation of Gloria's earliest works.


This painting represents leaves, some of which have medicinal qualities. This style by Gloria Petyarre is one of the most prestigious styles in Australian art, winning her the acclaimed Wynne Prize in 1999.

That first one. I was looking, looking. Looks like leaf, and I been put another one and another one and ‘ah yeah’. First leaf” - Gloria Petyarre
