Fred Williams Estate
Avenel, 1973

Fred Williams (1927–1982) was a painter and printmaker whose distinctive vision of the Australian landscape fundamentally altered the way the Australian continent is viewed and depicted. One of Australia’s most eminent and influential landscape artists, Williams’ work can be seen as a modernist reinterpretation of the Heidelberg tradition, representing the most significant development in Australian landscape painting since the impressionism of the Heidelberg School in the late 19th century.
