Today marks 100 years since the birth of artist Arthur Boyd, one of Australia’s most iconic artists.
24 July 2020

We commemorate a centenary since the birth of one of the country's most prominent artists, Arthur Boyd.

His legacy continues in the generous gift, made by Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne in 1993, of their much-loved Bundanon property to the Australian people.

Boyd's working studio remains one of the most significant artistic sites in Australia and was where many of his greatest artworks were created, including the painting of the Shoalhaven bush which the tapestry in the Great Hall of Parliament House was based on.

Bundanon Trust holds more than 3,800 items in its collection, including 1,300 works by Boyd, and 1,200 works from five generations of the Boyd family dynasty. Donations from past artists in residence also form a significant part of the collection.

The Bundanon Homestead and grounds are open to the public each Sunday. Learn more by watching our video

The Australian Government manages the Trust on behalf of the Australian people and it continues to support arts practice and engagement through residency, education, exhibition and performance programs today. For more information visit Bundanon Trust's website.
