Lionel Lindsay was the brother of famed artist Norman Lindsay and former director of the National Gallery of Victoria, Daryl Lindsay. He was a self-taught etcher and engraver, building a reputation for, among other subjects, images of Spain.

Fluent in Spanish, Lindsay spent extended time in Spain, recorded in the book ‘Lionel Lindsay in Spain: an antipodean abroad’ (2003) by Colin Holden. ‘The Vaquero’, Spanish for the cattle herder, is a vestige from this experience. A man and his goats look on at two bulls, a cowboy in chase.

Represented at the National Gallery of Victoria and the National Gallery of Australia, ‘Muleteers’ is a museum quality work – a reminder of European adventures and the rich history of Australian printmaking.
