Born in Bognor Regis, England in 1912 Drysdale lived in Australia from 1923. He studied with George Bell in Melbourne, at the Grosvenor School in London and at the Grande Chaumiere in Paris. He exhibited widely in Australia and overseas and his outback landscape works came to symbolize the real Australia. Retrospectives were mounted by the Art Gallery of NSW and the National Gallery of Victoria. In 1954 he represented Australia with Sidney Noland and Dobell at the Venice Biennale. He was appointed a Trustee of the Art Gallery of NSW in 1963 and in 1969 was knighted for his services to Australian art.
