DORA CARMEN JARRET (1904 - 1983)

 

Dora Jarret was Australian painter, teacher, illustrator, graphic artist and cartoonist. She studied in Paris in the early 1920s under Andre L’hôte, and later in Sydney under Dattilo Rubbo.  She was close friends with fellow students, Grace Cossington Smith, Alison Rehfisch and George Duncan. She was also an acquaintance and inspiration for Norman Lindsay. In the 1920s Jarret exhibited with the Royal Art Society, had work in the Australian Art Society’s first exhibition (1927) and was a regular exhibitor with the Australian Watercolour Institute. She showed watercolours, travel sketches and linocuts; the AGNSW purchased "An Italian Bypath".
