                                                       Russell Drysdale

Russell was born on the 7th of Feb 1912 and died 29th of June 1981. In 1929 Drysdale developed a detached retina in his left eye, a condition which plagued him for the rest of his life and left him almost fully blind in that eye. He left school and in the following year spent six months working with his uncle. Drysdale’s meeting with the artist George Bell represented a major turning point in his life. In his late forties Bell had rejected academical for modernism. Later in 1932, Drysdale attended the newly opened Shore-Bell School at the corner of Queen and Burke Streets in Melbourne for about two months.
