Howard Taylor - Forest Artist
West Australian artist Howard Taylor's death in 2001 brought to a close a career that began in prisoner of war camps in the 1940s and ended with his recognition as one of the greatest artists Australia has seen.
Taylor shunned the art world by choosing to live among the karri forests at Northcliffe where he could work undisturbed. He painted the ancient trees as no one has before and a leading NSW curator admitted he wept at the sight of one of Taylor's more recent works. This was the last interview Howard Taylor gave. He fell at his home the next day and died two weeks later.
