The Art of Arthur Streeton

Excerpt from The Art of Arthur Streeton: Special Number of Art in Australia He was cheerful and fond of company, and seemed to be quite uninterested in theories about art, but preoccupied with the task of representing in terms of paint the beauty of the scenes before him. If an argument about art started in the camp, Streeton would make a jest of it, walking up and down and shouting: Apples, Oranges and Lemonade. He joined with Roberts and myself in many a fierce bout with the old Art Society in the hope of widen ing its point of View, but he never lost his temper over them as many of us did. Indeed, it seemed to me that he never felt that theories about art, or the administration of art societies, really mattered. His nature was that of a fresh, breezy, care-free youth who revelled in the beauty of his country, and whose highest am bition was to paint it as faithfully as he could. His colour sense was not subtle, but he was warmly appreciative of the general fea tures of Australian colouration, and by hard continuous training his hand answered readily to every suggestion of colour that he saw before him.
