Albert Henry
Fullwood (1863-1930) 

Fullwood was an
English artist, he attended Birmingham Institute on a scholarship and on
completing his studies migrated to Sydney in 1883. He worked for John Sands in
Sydney and then as an illustrator at Garran the publisher, 1883-86. He
travelled extensively, including visits to Thursday Island, Torres Strait,
Palmerston (Darwin), Port Moresby, New Guinea, and New Zealand.

In the 1880’s he was
actively painting with a number of prominent colonial artist such as, Frank
Mahony, James Ashton, Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton at their camp at Sirius
Cove in Sydney. Encouraged by Livingston Hopkins, Fullwood focused on etching
during this period. He contributed drawings to the English newspapers The
, Black and White as well as to the Australian Town
and Country Journal
, the Bulletin, Illustrated Sydney News
and the Sydney Mail. He was an active member of the Art Society of New
South Wales from 1884, and with Roberts and others who were dissatisfied with
the influence of laymen on its committee, was active in setting up the
breakaway Society of Artists.

In 1900 he auctioned
his work and took his family first to New York for a year and then to London
where he found work as an illustrator. He exhibited at the Royal Academy of
Arts from 1906 and the Salon de la Societe des Artistes Francais, Paris. He
became a member of the Chelsea Arts Club. On the outbreak of World War I, 
Fullwood joined the Allied Arts Corps 1915-1917.  He was then discharged
as medically unfit and then served as a sergeant in the Royal Army Medical
Corps, and was posted the London General Hospital with fellow Australian
artists, Roberts, Streeton, George Coates and Miles Evergood. In 1918 now a
Lieutenant in the Australian Imperial Force, he went to France as official
artist to the 5th Division and painted scenes of the Western Front. Demobilized
on 31 December 1919, Fullwood embarked for Sydney and on his return, he and
John Shirlow founded the Australian Painter-Etchers’ Society and became a
member of the Australian Water-Colour Institute.
