Lloyd Rees AC CMG (1895 - 1988), artist and teacher, studied art in Brisbane from 1910 to 1916, and in England and Europe in the early 1920's. During his long career he produced paintings, prints and drawings. For many years he also taught part time at the University of Sydney. His landscapes won wide recognition amongst both the public and the art world with their unpretentious style which combined careful analysis and sensuality.
