  • About

    David Rose was born in Melbourne. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Forestry in 1959, and began painting and printmaking the following year, first making screenprints in 1961. In 1964-65 he travelled in Europe and studied etching at Escuela Lonja in Barcelona; he also produced a series of lithographs at a local commercial lithographer's workshop. From 1967-76 he taught printmaking at East Sydney Technical College, leaving to pursue his own work full-time from 1977-86. Rose taught at the City Art Institute, Sydney from 1986-90. Since 1976 he has lived and worked in Ourimbah NSW.

    'Donkey' was printed by the artist on his own press; the Gallery has the zinc plate. The subject was Fanta, the artist's donkey.
