Nora Heysen: A Portrait
Nora Heysen: A Portrait
The life of artist Nora Heysen was defined by an all-consuming drive to draw or paint. The first woman to win the Archibald Prize, and Australia's first female painter to be appointed an official war artist, Heysen's post-war portraiture and still lifes sustained a lifelong career. In 1989, aged 78, after years of artistic obscurity, she re-emerged on the Australian art scene, and the nation's major art institutions restored her position as a significant Australian artist. Extensively researched, and containing artworks and photographs from the life of Nora Heysen, this story of a driven, optimistic and resilient painter is a celebration of that restoration.
