Robert Dickerson is a Sydney born artist, who is highly regarded as one of Australia's most recognised figurative artists. Dickerson was also a prominent member of the Antipodean movement. Dickerson's emotionally charged work often features lone, solemn and at times vulnerable figures. The subject of his paintings, pastel and charcoal drawings are based upon people and situations from everyday life.
Dickerson's work is included in many regional and state collections throughout Australia, including the National gallery of Australia, the Queensland Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Victoria.
