CHG Director's Statement: Robert Dickerson is one of Australia’s most recognised and senior figurative painters, and was a prominent member of the Antipodeans group, formed in the late 1950s as a protest against the growing popularity of abstract expressionism.
With his extremely unique, self-developed style, Robert Dickerson paints individual visages; singular characters who are often dejected, destitute and alone. His desire to paint people and situations from everyday life has resulted in a great collection of honest and socially realist works.
His artworks often fetch six-figure prices at auction. He passed away in 2015 and will forever be known as "one of the grand old men of Australian art".
