About the Hermannsburg SchoolWelcome to the Hermannsburg School. This website was launched in 2002 as a dedication to the Hermannsburg School of Artists. The content within including images and writings are meant as a resource for enthusiasts, collectors and scholars alike.
About Me - I began to develop an interest in Hermannsbug art after acquiring a watercolour by Walter Ebatarinja, one of Namatjiras close proteges. Interested to discover more about the artist I began a line of enquiry and exploration which led to the establishment of this website. Since that first acquisition I have handled many works by the majority of Hermannsburg artists which form this most colourful school of art.
On this website you will find a History Section, Artists Page, Hermannsburg Gallery, Tribal Gallery and Australian Landscapes Gallery. The Hermannsburg Gallery provides a selection of Hermannsburg works which are currently available for sale. The Tribal Gallery provides a selection of works for sale from other Aboriginal Art communities and regions inc Arnhem Land, Papunya, Balgo Hills and more. The Australian Landscape Gallery offers a selection of Australian art with a focus on the diverse environments of the Australian outback.
I hope you enjoy the site and the culturally rich artworks of the Western Arrernte People.
