An icon of Australian art has passed away, known for his Surrealist imagery, Jeffrey Smart spent a majority of his adult life living and working in Italy. Always referred to as an expatriate, however, I will always see him as an Australian artist. When I was younger I used to marvel at his elaborate compositions, technical drawing and painting, his attention to detail and his intriguing use of symbols. He is one of the last of the modern generation. I could go on to talk about his career as an artist, but what I would say can be found should you Google his name. So I will just leave you with some examples of his work, for I feel that they speaker louder than any words of mine ever could.
