Paddy Japaljarri Stewart (b. c. 1940) is a Warlpiri-Anmatyerre painter. As a young man, Stewart worked and travelled extensively in the Northern Territory before joining a group of men who were painting a mural for the Papunya school. He painted twenty of the thirty-six Yuendumu Doors and has been a strong advocate for the Yuendumu School. In 1989 he was selected to create a ground painting installation for the Magiciens de la Terre exhibition in Paris. He has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1985. He has been closely involved with the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Association, and has served as its chairman. His work is held in the National Gallery of Australia and State galleries.

Portraits for Posterity

Previous exhibition, 2006

Drawn from some of the many donations made to the Gallery's collection, the exhibition Portraits for Posterity pays homage both to the remarkable (and varied) group of Australians who are portrayed in the portraits and the generosity of the many donors who have presented them to the Gallery.
