Hahndorf artist Nora Heysen was the first woman to win the Archibald Prize, and Australia’s first female painter to be appointed as an official war artist. A portraitist and a flower painter, Nora Heysen’s life was defined by an all-consuming drive to draw and paint. In 1989, aged 78,Nora re-emerged on the Australian art scene when the nation’s major art institutions restored her position after years of artistic obscurity. Extensively researched, and containing artworks and photographs from the painter’s life, Nora Heysen: a portrait is the first biography of the artist, and it has been enthusiastically embraced by the Heysen family.

This authorised biography coincides with a major retrospective of the works of Nora and her father, landscape painter Hans Heysen, to be held at the National Gallery of Victoria in March 2019.
