Title

Landscape with hillside

(1969)


Artist

Fred Williams

Australia, England

23 Jan 1927 - 22 Apr 1982


About

In 1969 Fred Williams made a number of landscapes distinctive for their matt, opaque ground which he painted first and allowed to dry completely, before applying further marks upon the surface to create an image. These works are characterised by an increased flatness and abstraction and led to the austere Australian landscape series of the same year.
