John (Cecil John) Brack (1920-1999)

Brack's early conventional style evolved into one of simplified, almost stark, shapes and areas of deliberately drab color, often featuring large areas of brown.  He made an initial mark in the 1950s with works on the contemporary Australian culture, such as the iconic Collins St., 5 pm (1955), a view of rush hour in post-war Melbourne.  Set in a bleak palette of browns and greys, it was a comment on the conformity of everyday life, wit (showing 500 of 4183 characters).
