Ian Fairweather (29 September 1891 – 20 May 1974) was an Australian Painter.
Fairweather was born in Scotland in 1891 and arrived in Melbourne in February 1934.
He is considered one of the greatest Australian painters of all time, combining western and Asian influences in his work. (Wikipedia)
Fairweather was such an interesting man……..somewhat like Earnest Hemingway. He travelled the world and even sailed the high seas on a raft he built himself.
Whereas many painters want fame and success Fairweather was happy…… just to paint
I hope you will search for more info on his art and life.
