Bennett, Rubery

(William) Rubery Bennett was born in Brisbane (1893 – 1987) and studied at the Royal Queensland Art Society School in Brisbane.  He was Secretary-General of this school for some years, before moving to Sydney where during 1930-40 he conducted the Rubery Bennett Art Gallery, dealing mostly

 in Australian impressionistic paintings.  He was one of the first to exhibit the work of Tom Garrett (1929) and later himself became a popular painting of late impressionistic landscape, his aim being to capture the pervading light of summer landscapes, his preferred subject matter.  He worked mainly in New South Wales.  His paintings have become well regarded and a number appeared in leading art auction houses during the 1980’s and 90’s.

He is represented National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and the Queensland Art Gallery.
