Lindsay, Norman Biography

Australian artist best known for his line drawings, oils, and watercolors, but he also distinguished himself as an illustrator.

Born in Creswick, Victoria, Norman Lindsay showed early skill as an illustrator and cartoonist, and in 1901 he became a cartoonist on the staff of the Sydney Bulletin, a position he continued to hold even as he developed his abilities in other artistic media. Norman Lindsay developed a romantic and original style of oil painting and line drawing with its own edge of satire. Many of Norman Lindsay's pieces in this genre are already considered to be collectors' items. He also painted nude portraits that created a great commotion in the relatively conventional art world of Sydney.
