Additional information

David Boyd and Arthur Boyd (along with ceramicist and sculptor, Guy Boyd) were the most successful art-brothers Australia has ever had. Works by David Boyd are extremely popular on the auction market and he is represented in the public collections of every National and State Art Institution, as well as a very large number of significant private collections around the country.

David Boyd left Australia to live in London in the 1960's where he had great success as a painter and ceramicist, before finally returning home in 1975 where he lived till his passing in 2011. His work concentrated on narratives that range from his important early works of the 1950's and 1960's that tell the often brutal history of our nation's first peoples, through to the more lyrical and whimsical later series' that mixed robust ancient stories from classical mythology with contemporary Australia and its landscape.
