(b Melbourne, 23 Jan. 1927; d Melbourne, 22 Apr. 1982). Australian painter and printmaker, regarded as the most original portrayer of his country's landscape. He studied in Melbourne, 1944–9, then in London, 1951–6. His earliest etchings, often with music-hall subjects, were produced at about this time. He returned to Australia in 1957, and from the late 1950s began to paint landscapes revealing a distinctly personal vision of the country's landscape, such as Charcoal Burner (1959, NG of Victoria, Melbourne).
