|Death:||24th April, 1999|
Arthur Merric Bloomfield Boyd was born at Murrumbeena, Victoria. He was a leading Australian painter of the late 20th century. Boyd's work ranges from impressionist renderings of Australian landscape to starkly expressionist figuration, and many canvases feature both. Several famous works set Biblical stories against the Australian landscape, such as The Expulsion, now at Art Gallery of New South Wales. Boyd was a member of the Antipodeans, a group of Melbourne painters that also included Clifton Pugh, David Boyd, John Brack, Robert Dickerson, John Perceval and Charles Blackman. In 1993, Arthur and Yvonne Boyd gave family properties comprising 1,100 hectares at Bundanon on the Shoalhaven River to the people of Australia. Held in trust, Boyd later donated further property, artwork, and the copyright to all of his work.
