CHARLES BLACKMAN OBE (b. 1928)

Charles Blackman has attracted international acclaim as one of Australia 's masters of modern painters. His first London showings, in 1960, called attention to work that was 'big, tough and tender'. His images allude to the hidden strengths and resources of the vulnerable, such as women, children, the blind - all whom have a power that is never dimmed. Blackman's work has universal appeal, speaking an intimate language of the human condition.

Having exhibited throughout the world, Charles Blackman's paintings are represented in the National Gallery, all State and many regional galleries in Australia . He is represented in major public and private collections in Europe, Asia and America , including MOMA (France); Tate Gallery , Victoria and Albert Museum , Whitechapel and Hallmark galleries, British Arts Council (UK); Ikeda Museum ( Japan ). Charles Blackman was awarded the Silver Jubilee Medal for service to art and is Australia 's most highly sought after figurative artist.
