Artist:

Sir Erik Langker (1898-1982                   

Marine and landscape painter, President of Trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales 1962-75, president, Royal Art Society of NSW from 1946. Studied under Dattilo-Rubbo, Julian Ashton and Will Ashton. Member of the Royal Art Society. OBE conferred for services to art.

After leaving school he studied with Julian Ashton and subsequently with A. Dattilo Rubbo at the Royal Art Society School. He also studied with J.S. Watkins and the marine artists James R. Jackson and Will Ashton. In 1921 Langker began his long association with the Royal Art Society (RAS) when he exhibited two works, Haystacks and Sunlit Hills, at their annual spring show. The following year he exhibited twelve works with them and his seascape Clouds at Evening was illustrated in the exhibition catalogue. Despite his youth, Langker’s art showed promise to the leaders of the RAS and in 1923 he was made an Associate of the Royal Art Society (ARAS) and served a one-year term on the RAS executive council.
