WILLIAM BOISSEVAIN OBE

The son of a Dutch diplomat, Boissevain travelled the world before his arrival in Western Australia at the age of twenty. After studying in England and Paris, he found his home of fifty years in the foothills outside Perth.

Boissevain's art is founded on the pursuit of beauty, harmony and tranquillity. His versatility and passion for colour have won him an enthusiastic following for his paintings of the dry Western Australian landscape, of bush and flowers, figures, portraits, animals and birds.
