1923 Mining Town


Mining Town (c.1986) is lavishly rendered in an array of colour and generously applied paint. Here Pro Hart has juxtaposed earthy tones and primary colours to bring alive the miners’ camps & huts where daily life takes on a poetry and ambiance uniquely associated with the outback. Pro was a great observer of life and his affection for its residents and their lifestyle is evident in this richly illustrated painting. Mining and mine towns are recurring themes in Pro Hart”s paintings because of their personal reference for the artist who spent 20 years working as a miner in Broken Hill.

One of Australia’s most recognised and beloved artists, Pro’s paintings have won world acclaim, with his highly individualistic and semi-primitive style depicting scenes typical of the Australian outback. Pro worked in oils and water colours with both brush and pallet knife, using vivid colours true to the vastness of the outback with its harsh yet beautiful landscape and mining towns in the region in which he grew up. For all admirers, collectors and owners of Pro Hart artworks, we have some exceptional and iconic paintings on sale over the summer holiday season.
