‘Kwariitnama (Organ Pipes)’ – Albert Namatjira

141921

Working in the late forties and early fifties, Albert Namatjira is still considered by many to have been the very best at capturing the unique Australian landscape.  This piece from the National Gallery of Austalia is a watercolour over pencil on paper.

Namatjira captured the feeling of my beloved Flinders Ranges better than any artist before or since.

I also like Matthew Percival for his amazing Australian Outback scapes.

The song on Albert Namatjira by "Not Drowning, Waving" is also a masterpiece.
