About Artist:

Charles Blackman is one of the most celebrated Australian figurative artists of the 20th century. An excellent draughtsman as well as a painter, he created imagery often in series based on personal, literary and musical themes. He came to prominence after the Second World War as one of the so-called Heide circle of artists and was also a founding member of The Antipodeans art movement.

Blackman's first major series, ?Schoolgirls?, created between 1952 and 1955, has long captured the public imagination. In it, he painted the schoolgirl figure, often depicted in eerily empty streetscapes, as a symbolic embodiment of urban loneliness and alienation.

Charles Blackmans paintings areheld in all major public collections in Australia and internationally including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Tate.
