Hugh Sawrey

Along with Pro Hart, Sawrey (1919-1999) is arguably one of Australia’s greatest bush painters and undoubtedly one of the best ever painters of the horse. He has been listed by the directors of London’s Tyron Gallery as one of the top ten horse painters of the world.

Vibrant images of fiery steeds punching through the thirsty dust of a drought-ridden land are synonymous with Sawrey. True to the tradition of history painting in Australia, he was particularly inspired by the heroic effort of people to wrest a livelihood from the unyielding Queensland outback.
