TRAVIS WEBBER (1900 - 1968)

Travis Webber was an award-winning, South Australian artist. Educated under Antonio Dattilo-Rubbo and James R. Jackson in Sydney, Webber established himself as one of the Nation's most successful and prolific landscape artists. He held countless successful solo exhibitions across four states during the 1930s and 1940s, winning the Society Of Artists prize numerous times, and had several works acquired by the Queensland Art Gallery, Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of South Australia. The Grampians is a very important landscape for Australian artists, popularised by Arthur Streeton, Arthur Boyd and Hans Heysen, and was a favourite subject for Webber. This work was exhibited at the Broken Hill Art Gallery, purchased by the Art Gallery Of S.A. and remained in their permanent collection for many years, before being sold to a wealthy family in Sydney
