Summary William Robinson: a painter's journey is a compelling documentary about one of Australia's most important artists. Recognized for his astonishing self-portraits which have twice won the Archibald Prize, William Robinson is also a masterful landscape painter. In 2009, a gallery in his name opened in Old Government House at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. It was the first time in Australia that an artist had been honoured in such a way. Art critic John McDonald wrote of his work, "As a painter his talent for composition has never been equalled in this country. Try and dismantle one of his epic landscapes and the complexity soon becomes apparent." (John McDonald, The Sydney Morning Herald, May 14, 2011). William robinson: a painter's journey traces the places that have inspired the painter - from his early farmyard paintings to the majestic Creation Landscape series and most recently, the quiet still life paintings drawn from the intimate surrounds of his Brisbane house and garden. William Robinson is the main interview in the film which also features observations from John McDonald, former director of the National Gallery of Australia Betty Churcher, author David Malouf and painters Davida Allen and June Tupicoff. Directed by Catherine Hunter.
