Tug of War by Ethel Spowers



About The Artist - Ethel Spowers


Ethel Louise Spowers (1890-1947) was an Australian painter and printmaker. Having trained at the Melbourne National Gallery Art School, she had her first solo exhibit in Melbourne at age 30, showcasing fairy-tale art prints. Largely influenced by Japanese woodcut art, she gained a reputation for black and white children’s story illustrations and she also explored the art of the linocut.


This way, Ethel Spowers mounted an exhibition of Australian linocuts in Melbourne in 1930. In 1932, she became a founder of the Contemporary Art Group, promoting modern art in Australia. Ethel Spowers died on 5 May 1947. Although she had destroyed many of her paintings in a bonfire, a memorial exhibition of her watercolours, line-drawings, wood-engravings and colour linocuts was held at George's Gallery, Melbourne, in 1948. At artrepublic, we are lucky to have limited edition art prints from Ethel Spowers.
