Arthur Boyd’s ‘Poet Rejecting His Muse’ is a work of profound poetic resonance. It pictures the creative struggle: an artist rejecting the oncoming of inspiration. Creating is a lifelong dance between a transcriber and his muse, her unexpected strike a moment of undoing.

Boyd is an icon of Australian art. Foremost in Modernism, he is represented in all state collections and has been honoured with numerous exhibitions. His work is informed by history, mythology, art, feeling and personal experience.

For collectors of Boyd and Modernism, the museum-quality ‘Poet Rejecting His Muse’ is a powerful find.
