Arthur Boyd (1920-1999)
Iconic Australian artist Arthur Boyd drew inspiration for many of his landscape paintings and sketches from his passion and love of the Bundanon region along the Shoalhaven River in New South Wales.
In 1971 Arhtur's first visit to the Bundanon property, located on 1,100 hectares of pristine bush land overlooking the Shoalhaven River, had an immediate and profound effect on his thinking and artwork, and it reignited his love of landscape painting.
Arthur eventually made this paradise his home and then chose selectively to release a fine art limited edition range of works including 'The Bundanon Quartet'.
In 1993 Arthur and Yvonne Boyd gifted the Bundanon property (which includes the Bundanon Homestead site and the Riversdale site) to the Australian people, as a unique cultural and environmental asset.
The gift was borne out of Arthur Boyd's often stated belief that 'you can't own a landscape' and the deeply felt wish that others might also draw inspiration from Bundanon.
Today Bundanon Trust is the custodian of the Boyd family art collection, the historic Bundanon Homestead and Arthur Boyd’s studio.
In addition to caring for a collection of more than 4,000 artworks and objects the Trust supports the development of arts practice across all disciplines through its artist in residence program.
