|Arthur Baker-Clack (1877 - 1955) originally covered the Western Australian goldfields as a reporter for the Perth Morning Herald before travelling to Paris in 1906 to study painting. He exhibited across Paris and London, and was a jury member for the Salon d'Automne and of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. Baker-Clack found great inspiration from the modernist works of Cézanne and Seurat, his work is held in many public collections in Australia. |
