A few years ago I bought a watercolour by Davy Inkamala. I could find no mention of him on the web or in various dictionaries of Australian Art. I emailed several Galleries in Australia but never heard back. I have since sold it at auction here in the UK but I am sad that he is not recognised on your site or anywhere else. It was of the usual mountains, valley floor and white gums, well painted and clearly signed. I hope you can trace his family and add him to your biographies. Good luck!

Otto Pareoultja paintings
I was lucky enough to live in Canberra for 2yrs 1968 - 1970 and the family i was living with have a daughter who spent 6mths in Hermannsburg teaching and was very interested in Otto\'s paintings.When she left hermannsberg she bought a painting for my mother which ihave inherited.Do you have any idea of the value of Otto\'s paintings for 2012. My painting is roughly A1 ++ size.Iwould be grateful for any information, so i can write a piece about it, so the children will know what his paintings are about.Thank you in anticipation to anyone out there who can help me

During 1969 - 70 I made several visits to Alice Springs and bought several Aboriginal Paintings by different artists including a signed watercolor by Oscar Namatjira that looks similar to many of his Ghost Gum paintings of the McConnel range.
I also have one signed by a Gabriella Wallace of whom I can find no record in an on line search of Aboriginal Artists.
How can I get more information about Oscar\'s paintings and hopefully a general value for his signed paintings

I found it very interesting to read about the different artists on your website. I have inherited a painting by Brenton Raberaba which was given to my mother many years ago by her sister. It is a restful painting of a large ghost gum in the left hand side foreground, with other smaller trees leading to mountain ranges in the distance.

My family emigrated to Australia in 1958 and my father was a doctor at the Alice Springs hospital from September 1958 to March 1959.
We lived next door to the hospital, sometime during that time my mother bought a painting from the artist who came to our door, I was there at the time, so it could have been during the school summer holidays, I was so pleased to find some information about this wonderful painter from your website, I treasure the painting. It brings back very happy memories of our time in Alice Springs.

Hi, I have just bought a lovely dot painting at an auction. It is approx 10x8. I removed the frame curious to see if there any clues to the artist on the back and found the name Linda Namatjira and the name of the painting \"Two women sitting in a waterhole\" Women is mispelled \"wemon\" Can anyone tell me if this would be Ewald\'s daughter born in 1962?
