Description:

Leonard Long was born in Summer Hill, New South Wales and raised in Mittagong. He painted his first painting at the age of 16 and started his working life as a watch-maker in nearby Bowral later moving to Nowra for work in 1934. By 1939 Long had become more seriously interested in landscape painting and after returning from his civil service during the Second World War as a precision instrument maker, he sold his watch-making business to his partner and began full-time painting in 1955. During his career Long held many successful solo exhibitions throughout Australia and travelled extensively both within Australia and overseas. His first overseas trip was sponsored by the American millionaire John Galvin and the experience made a lasting impression on the artist. He knew and painted with many other Australian artists including Albert Namatjira. Represented in the Art Gallery Of New South Wales.
