Reynold Hart, born 1938, was a Noongar artist and member of the Pinjarup and Kaniyang peoples of southwest Western Australia. Hart was taken to the Carrolup Native Settlement near Katanning when he was four years old, and was amongst the celebrated group of children artists who were encouraged to draw and paint their surroundings by teachers Noel and Lily White, the couple that managed the Carrolup School between 1945-51. Hart’s landscape paintings and pastels, along with those of other Carrolup children artists were exhibited and sold to wide acclaim in Australia, Europe and New Zealand in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Hart kept painting in his adult years. His works are in the collection of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Berndt Museum of Anthropology and the Picker Gallery at Colgate University in New York. Hart passed away in Collie, Western Australia, in 1981.
