About this artwork

Shearing the Rams is considered a masterpiece of Australian Impressionism. The original, held in the National Gallery of Victoria, was painted in 1890 as a oil on canvas on composition board. In this iconic Australian masterpiece, Roberts depicts Australian life at the time with masculine shearers working during the shearing season in country NSW.
Printed on premium satin finish paper, the colours and quality is achieved with premium Epson inks.

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.
