Leonard Long was an Australian painter best known for his landscape paintings of the outback rendered in a painterly realist style.
Long often focused on rivers and gorges in his landscapes, charmed by the curve of space and atmosphere revealed as these bodies of water trailed off into the distance. He was profoundly influenced by the earlier work of the Heidelberg School of painters in Australia, which included Arthur Streeton and Charles Conder.
Born on April 25, 1911 in Summer Hill, Australia, Long worked as a watchmaker during his early adulthood while painting during his spare time. It was not until 1955 when Long sold his watchmaking business that he was able to devote himself fully to painting. He painted alongside and became friends with the celebrated Aboriginal Australian artist Albert Namatjira, who also specialized in painting landscapes of the bush country.
Today, Long’s works are in the collections of the Vatican in Rome, the National Gallery Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in New Zealand, among others.
The artist died on November 3, 2013 in Melbourne, Australia at the age of 102.
