New South Wales – Sixty years old paintings of Pixie O’Harris were mysteriously found at a Manning based hospital in New South Wales. Taree resident, Janine Roberts, discovered the paintings when she visited the hospital. The paintings were made by the famous painter, Pixie O’Harris, in 1957 for the hospital. All the paintings are based on children stories, including The Babes in the Wood, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood. The theme of these paintings is similar to the Great Wave of Kanagawa, which is one of Japan’s best works till date. That particular painting depicts the contrast between transient human life and the imposing nature.

Ms. Roberts was already familiar with Pixie O’Harris‘ art, and she saw the paintings ignored in the hospital’s office floor. She got very excited and emotional after discovering the paintings. Ms. Roberts asked the hospital staff about their existence in the hospital, but nobody could tell her how long the paintings are there.

She went back to the hospital with her fellow, Penny Teerman, to collect the late artist’s rare paintings. There she found 13 more paintings, kept randomly in the hospital’s storeroom. There were a total of 17 paintings in the hospital. Ms. Robert told that eight more paintings are missing from the collection of 25 paintings. To find them, she put a call on social media but did not get any clue.

Ms. Roberts Said, “The day I found them, I packed them into the ute very carefully and drove to the art gallery straight away. We were all here, and it was very exciting unpacking each one and looking at it.”

After the full collection of the paintings would be available, they will be featured in an exhibition in January 2020. Previous paintings of Pixie and Olaf O’Harris will also be a part of the exhibition.

The exhibition curator, Sue Mitchell said, “it was rare to have a full series of Pixie and Olaf O’Harris hospital paintings. It’s like finding lost treasure.”
