Charles Blackman (1928-2018) has brought much joy to Australians with his diverse range of subjects and mediums. He moved to Melbourne in 1950 and became a member of the Antipodeans in 1959. He created haunting images of grave women and girls, detached from their surroundings, absorbed in daydreams or games and oblivious to reality.

He has won many awards throughout his career, including the Rowney prize for drawing in 1959, the Helena Rubenstein Scholarship in 1960, the Dyeson Endowment Award and the Crouch Prize. Blackman's work was included in the Whitechapel Open Exhibition in 1961 and Tate Gallery exhibitions of Australian Art 1962-63. A major retrospective, 'Schoolgirls and Angels,' was organized in 1993 by the National Gallery of Victoria, touring to Sydney, Brisbane and Perth. In 1997 he was awarded an OBE for his services to art.

His work is held in all Australian state and most regional galleries, institutional and private collections.

This painting does not come with a photo of the artist holding the work.
