Benjamin Landara

Benjamin Landara 1921-1985
Benjamin Landara married into the Namatjira family, and his work was encouraged by Albert Namatjira. He was a kindly person, and an asset to the family group in which was a well-established place. As an excellent colourist and very competent waterolourist, he paints in the lower tonal values and gives to his work a pastel quality which makes it very popular.
