Art Friday: Jeffrey Smart


Artist: Frank Jeffrey Edson Smart

Born 1921 (Adelaide, Australia) -- Died 21st June 2013 (Italy)

Australian urban landscape artist (surrealist)

Why do I like this art - I just love the bold bright colour and line.  However I have included some that are far more muted but still have the strong lines and similar character.  His work reminds me very much of American artist Edward Hopper (another favourite of mine)

  1. While this is not my favourite style, I do like it. :)
    The seaside painting with the pram reminds me of Adelaide seaside! :)

    1. The painting directly below the pram one also reminded me of SA and the church painting is quite Australian in feel and one of my favourites.
