Born in Newcastle NSW in 1928, Olsen is well known for his energetic and distinctive painting style and in particular for his lyrical depiction of the landscape. He is a major figure in the story of Australian art and his unique and sensual pictorial language presents a very personal view of the world (https://www.ngv.vic.gov.au/exhibition/john-olsen). He was appointed an officer of the order of Australia in 2001 and the Centenary Medal. He won the 2005 Archibald Prize for his portrait of Self portrait Janus Faced, and the Wynne Prize in both 1969 and 1985.
