Australian Art Master Dies

One of Australia's foremost painters, Sydney-born surrealist James Gleeson, has died in the New South Wales capital at the age of 92. Gleeson, who was born in Sydney, has had his art work exhibited for the past 70 years. Works by Gleeson were donated to the National Art Gallery of Australia in September 2007 as part of one of the largest collections of Australian surrealism art ever collected. His works have been featured at the Art Gallery of NSW, the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra. Gleeson, who lived in Sydney, wrote several books, including one on the work of Australian sculptor and painter William Dobell. He used the human form less and less in his later works.
