John Dowie

John Dowie - Oil on canvas - 40cm x 30cm
$700 Aus + pph

John Dowie passed away last year. He was South Australia's foremost sculptor. Working primarily in clay and bronze his portrait busts and figurative pieces adorn many streets, squares and premises in and around Adelaide and Australia generally. He had a long history of association with the Royal South Australian Society of Arts and his contribution to the arts in Australia is not to be underestimated. This painting is on display in my exhibition opening on Sunday 5 July.
