Born in 1920, Enos Namatjira's work was heavily influenced by his father Albert Namatjira, also a renowned watercolour artist. His subject matter captured the austerity and beauty of the Australian outback, imbuing them with knowledge of country and aboriginal spiritual beliefs. Known for his evocative gum trees, rolling blue mountains and dramatic lighting, his works provide a stunning snapshot of Australia’s untouched country.
Namatjira’s work is represented in numerous public and private collections within Australia, including the National gallery of Australia.
Those with a keen eye for watercolour paintings will recognise Enos Namatjira’s Ghost Gum in Central Australian Landscape.
