David Fielding Gough BOYD OAM (1924-2011) was an Australian artist, and a member of the Boyd artistic dynasty. BOYD is Australian’s most loved artist and one of the most significant artists from post-WWII until today.
As well as a painter and potter David was also an accomplished print maker and produced many etching, colloblocks, silkscreens and lithographs. His works resonate with powerful imagery. They are concerned with innocence and evil, destruction and creation, depicting the themes of the universe and mythology. With his reputation as a significant artist beginning to establish, the Commonwealth Institute of Art in London held a retrospective of his paintings at their gallery in 1969.
