Fredrick McCubbin

1855 - 1917

Frederick McCubbin was born in Melbourne on 25 February 1855. He was the third of eight children. He was educated at William Willmott's West Melbourne Common School and later at St. Paul's School, Swanston Street, Melbourne. This formal education ceased around 1869 when his father secured for him a position in a solicitor's office, where he worked as a solicitor's clerk.

Around 1870, McCubbin enrolled in evening classes at the Artisan's School of Design, Lygon Street, Carlton and from 1871 he was apprenticed for five years as a coach painter with Stevenson and Elliott. In 1872 he enrolled in the School of Design, National Gallery of Victoria, and studied drawing under Thomas Clark. He continued his studies there under Oswald Rose Campbell who was appointed Drawing Master of the National Gallery School in 1876.

It was here that McCubbin met Tom Roberts and they became close friends. McCubbin's fellow students gave him the nickname 'The Proff' because of his philosophizing and strong views.

Fredrick McCubbin died from a heart attack on 20 December 1917 at his home in South Yarra. He was buried privately on 21 December 1917 in the Brighton Cemetery.
