Kenneth Jack

1924 – 2006

Kenneth Jack was a prolific painter and printmaker renowned for his landscapes. As a young man, he studied under the esteemed watercolourist John Rowell. During World War II, Jack enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force, where his travels allowed him to visit new lands, sketchbook in hand. By the mid-1940s, he had already created over 500 works of art.

Returning home from service Jack began teaching art. Additionally, the inspiration he found in the landscapes overseas led to Jack’s embarking on extended expeditions across Australia. Searching for the original and expressive in the urban and rural landscapes of his home country, Jack is celebrated for his ability to evoke the powerful diversity of Australia. 

Jack is a renowned artist nationally and internationally, with works in collections such as the Royal Collection at Windsor, Victoria and Albert museum, National Gallery of Australia and the Australian War Memorial, as well as most state collections. Celebrated for his painterly ability, Jack was the only Australian born member of the Royal Watercolour Society in London.
