Horace Brodzky

(Melbourne, Australia, 1885 - 1969, London, England)

Australian

Horace Brodzky was a student at the School of the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, but spent most of his creative life in London, where he moved in 1908. He was one of the earliest Australian artists to embrace the modern style of the twentieth century. Brodzky was the first Australian to be exhibited at the Venice Biennale (1912) and the one of the first artists to experiment with lino-cutting. His graphics were used to illustrated the literary works of Ezra Pound, Eugene O'Neill, Upton Sinclair and Theodore Dreisler.
