Maurice Namatjira 1938-1977:
Maurice Namatjira was born in 1939, and benefited even more than his elderly brother’s from the benefits achieved by Albert Namatjira’s reputation. He had a fine physique and good features, and was a well-adjusted and outgoing personality; happily married, with a family which he strived constantly to provide for and please. Such strong characteristics are reflected in the bold colours and statements of his paintings.
