CHARLES BLACKMAN   Australia      Etchings

Charles Blackman's haunting and enchanting images of women and girls absorbed in daydreams or games have an enduring appeal. Deep shadows and accentuation of his figures' eyes occur throughout Blackman's works with a pervasive sense of melancholy. Blackman is known for his draughtsmanship which is oarticularly suited to the etching technique.  He .has won many awards throughout his career, including the Rowney prize for drawing in 1959, the Helena Rubenstein Scholarship in 1960, the Dyson Endowment Award and the Crouch Prize. Blackman's work was included in the Whitechapel Open Exhibition in 1961 and London's Tate Gallery exhibition of Australian Art 62-63.
