Robert Dickerson

Australian Artist

Robert Dickerson was born in New South Wales in 1924 and passed away in 2015. He was a professional boxer before joining the RAAF and then turning seriously to painting in 1950.  He used two dimensional simply styled figures to express fundamental and in most cases, sombre human emotions.

His work is represented in the National, State and Provincial galleries throughout Australia, as well as in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
