More about the prize

New South Wales artists Euan Macleod won the 2009 Tattersall’s Club Landscape Art Prize. Macleod’s painting ‘Painting Mountains ’Oil on Polyester is a strong colourful work depicting an artist in the foreground painting the subject of Macleod’s painting of the Flinders Ranges.

This theme of using a human image in the landscape has been a signature stroke of the New Zealand born artist. Macleod won the Archibald Prize with a self portrait Head like a Hole in 1999 and Sulman Prize in 2001. This is the second occasion that Macleod has won the Tattersall’s Club Art Prize. Macleod receives $20,000 for his win.

Sydney artist Paul Ryan has won the Highly Commended Award taking away two business class airfares to Europe. Ryan has been a frequent finalist in both the Wynne and Archibald Prizes including the 2009 Archibald prize where his subject was Tom Kenneally while his final entry in 2009 Wynne was titled My Home is the Sea

The Club’s Members Choice Award was won by Scott McDougall with his painting Lines and Whispers, Redfern.

The Exhibition will be relocated to Waterfront Place in Eagle St Brisbane for two weeks of public viewing from Monday September 14. Images of the entries to this year’s Art Prize are available on the Clubs website.
