Sir Hans Heysen OBE (8 October 1877 2 July 1968) was a German-born Australian artist. I am trying only to paint as truthfully as I can, and that which my eyes see and perhaps what I unconsciously feel. Truth to Nature after all is the goal, but Truth interpreted through temperament.

Hans Heysen wrote this to friend Lionel Lindsay in 1919. Heysen was born #otd 1877. #NationalGalleryAus #MuseumFromHome #OnThisDay #LionelLindsay.
