Rupert Charles Wulsten Bunny (29 September 1864 25 May 1947) was an Australian painter, born in St Kilda, Victoria. He achieved success and critical acclaim as an expatriate in fin-de-sicle Paris. He gained an honourable mention at the Paris Salon of 1890 with his painting Tritons and a bronze medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900 with his Burial of St Catherine of Alexandria.

The French state acquired 13 of his works for the Musee du Luxembourg and regional collections. With the warmer weather beaming into Sydney, why not add twelve layers of fabric and head to the beach? This painting, with its antiquated but still sun-smart. version of Slip, Slop, Slap is by Australian artist Rupert Bunny, who was born #onthisday in 1864.
