Happy birthday Roy de Maistre, one of the pioneers of modern Australian

Happy birthday Roy de Maistre, one of the pioneers of modern Australian painting, born #onthisday in 1894. De Maistre’s ‘Rhythmic composition in yellow green minor’ (1919) – Australia’s first abstract painting – exemplifies his theory of colour harmonisation based on analogies between colours of the spectrum and notes of the musical scale. See it today in our Australian galleries.
