1867 - 1943 Arthur Streeton, the fourth of seven children, was born at Duneed, near Geelong, Victoria on the 8 April 1867. From Christmas 1888 to mid 1890, he lived on the Mount Eagle estate. In August 1889, Streeton exhibited 40 works in the 9 x 5 Impression Exhibition. He traveled to London in 1907 where he married. He returned to Australia and in 1921 purchased a property in Olinda, which he called 'Longacres' and built his home. In 1937, Streeton was knighted for his services to art. His friends knew him as 'Smike' (from Dickens' novel Nicholas Nickleby) allegedly because of his slight physique. Sir Arthur Streeton died on 1 September 1943 and is buried in Ferntree Gully Cemetery.
What Our Customers Say:
My prints are fantastic. Even the texture is impressive making it more like the genuine article!
I bought 3 prints. I found one hard to come by previously and I was relieved when I got onto this site and discovered I could get it- as well as others representative of the genre. I was surprised with the range and impressed with the price so I bought more than what I was intending to but an investment in great prints nevertheless. I was even surprised by the quality of the paper! Looking forward to Facebooking the end result when framed.
+ Easy, economic one stop shopping for a variety of print styles. Impressive turn around time - even at Christmas.
