  • About

    Rex Wood was born at Laura, South Australia and studied at the South Australian School of Art under Mary Packer Harris. His work was illustrated in the School of Art journal 'Forerunner'. He produced many linocuts during the late 1920s and 1930s, exhibiting prints with the Society of Arts in Adelaide. In 1938 he left for Europe and studied in London at the Anglo-French Art Centre at St Johns Wood and the Southampton Row School of Art. He lived in Portugal before returning to Australia in 1956.
