Tom Roberts (1856-1931), one of Australia\’s most important painters, was born in England but emigrated to Australia when he was thirteen years old.
We\’ve covered the following paintings for our artist study. All images are taken from The Athenaeum. The paintings became a little blurred when I enlarged them here, unfortunately, but I gave up trying to reduce them as I kept messing up the titles and couldn\’t get them matched up to the actual paintings. Technology is not my strong point.
