Born in Sydney in 1928, Charles Blackman is a major figure in modernist Australian art. He has made an important contribution to Australian art, both individually and as a member of the Antipodeans, a group of Melbourne painters that also included Arthur Boyd, David Boyd, John Brack, Robert Dickerson, John Perceval and Clifton Pugh.

A sense of melancholy pervades his art. His dreamlike images are imbued with mystery and foreboding.
