Arthur Boyd is one of the most celebrated artists in Australia’s cultural history. He spent his youth painting idyllic impressionist landscapes and portraits of the places and people that surrounded him in Victoria. In 1959 Boyd began to explore the medium of printmaking, producing etchings, lithographs and illustrated books. Later in life Boyd purchased a property on the Shoalhaven River where his depictions of the infinite variety of this magnificent landscape fueled his artistic imagination until his death in 1999.
Boyd has had hundreds of exhibitions and his works are highly sought after by leading private and public collectors. He is represented in every public collection in Australia and many international public and corporate collections.
