About this artwork

The Golden Fleece (or Golden Fleece Shearing) was originally known as Shearing at Newstead and was painted by Australian artist Tom Roberts in 1894. In this painting Roberts shows us sheep shearers at work in the shearing shed at Newstead Station, in northern NSW. This is one of several painting by Roberts where he pays homage to rural life and captures past traditions such as the use of manual shears.
The original is oil on canvas measuring about 104 x 159 cm and is now held in collection at the Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney.
This poster is published by a leading Australian art print publisher.

1856 - 1931 Tom Roberts, painter and photographer, was born on 8 March 1856 at Dorchester, Dorset, England. He arrived in Geelong on 22 June 1869 and settled in Collingwood. In his early years Roberts was encouraged to paint plein-air by Louis Buvelot and his interest in plein-air painting was further stimulated by a study tour of Europe between 1881 and 1885. In 1889, he exhibited 62 works in the 9 x 5 Impression Exhibition. In 1896 Roberts married and in 1903 the couple travelled to London. They returned in 1923 and settled at 'Talisman', their small cottage on half an acre, in Kallista. Tom Roberts, who was known as 'Bulldog' to his friends due to his tenacious personality. He died at 'Talisman' on 14 September 1931, and his ashes are buried in the Illawarra churchyard, near Longford, Tasmania.
