Otto Pareroultja (1914-73) Australia (Aboriginal)

Biographical Information

Born in 1914 at Hermannsburg near Alice Springs, Otto Pareroultja was a member of the Arunta Tribe of Aborigines, and the elder brother of Edwin and Reuben. Like the other Hermannsburg artists, he painted the central Australian landscape in watercolour in an impressionist manner, but his use of circles and lines is reminiscent of primitive Aboriginal art forms. Pareroultja's work is represented in the National Collection, Canberra and in many state galleries. He died in 1973. Edit or add to this biography
