Fred Williams revolutionised the way we see and think about the Australian landscape. In the 1960s, inspired by the landscape of Victoria close to where he lived, he distilled the essence of environment in his paintings and works on paper. However, while the subjects were regional, Williams wanted to convey a wider sense of place. The local was the template for the more general, unifying elements of the continent.
