Brett Whiteley was the first Australian to combine a pop star's persona with that of a visual artist. He worked across the mediums of painting, sculpture and graphic work and was several times awarded the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes. He achieved domestic and international recognition early in his career in the 1960s. His Matisse influenced paintings of domestic interiors and Sydney Harbour remain enduring images.
