Adrian FEINT

Adrian Feint was born in Narrandera, New South Wales, and attended the Sydney Art School both before and after he served in France and Belgium during World War I. He started as a draughtsman and designer, and soon became known for his etched and engraved bookplates. He became a professional painter in 1938, and took commissions for flower studies, while also painting landscapes.

Feint's first oils were flat, but later paintings showed great depth. In his flower pieces, his imagination found an outlet combining manufactured objects from other lands with flowers and shells of the sandstone belt of the eastern coastal region of Australia.

His paintings were meticulously designed and set in a related environment of time and space.
