ARTHUR BOYD (1920 - 1999)

Arthur Boyd

Arthur Boyd was a member of one of the most reknowned artistic dynasties of Australian art history. Influenced by his eminent artistic family, Boyd learnt painting, ceramic sculpture and pottery from an early age. Exhibiting widely since 1949 in Australia , Europe, America , Hong Kong and Asia, Arthur has became Australia 's most recognised and venerable artist. His work may also be located within the Australian National Gallery, all State and regional galleries as well as prominent public collections abroad.

Arthur Boyd's career spans more than fifty years of innovation and diversity in translating the Australian landscape, including impressionist, expressionist and figurative works and often combining biblical, mythological or fantastic scenes. His spirited imagination infused Australia 's spiritual and physical landscapes with his beautiful and haunting insight.

With the purchase in the 70s of a property in the Shoalhaven region of NSW came one of the most sustained forms of inspiration to Boyd 's work. It was here that he painted some of his most well-known studies of Bundanon and the Shoalhaven River and its surrounding landscape paintings which have achieved a quintessentially Australian evocation of that interactive spirit, through all its manifold moods and are highly sought after.
