A member of one of the most distinguished 'art' families of Australia. Born in 1920, he was instructed by his father, William Merric Boyd, in the art of ceramics, and painting in the Heidelberg tradition by his grandfather. During the 1930's Boyd came into contact with the modern movement and was brought into touch with the Contemporary Art Society by Albert Tucker. One of Australia's most important artists, Boyd died in 1999.
