The Twenty Melbourne Painters Society (TMPS) has always held its portrait artists in high esteem. Some of our past members, Sir John Longstaff, Max Meldrum, Sir William Dargie and Ernest Buckmaster, were all successful in achieving Australia’s highest portrait award, the Archibald Prize.
The Society, in the past, has offered Portrait Commissions, as advised in the 1963 exhibition catalogue (below, courtesy Paul McDonald Smith).
Once again the Society is reintroducing this opportunity for the public to privately commission portraits from our society members who specifically excel in this particular genre.
The TMPS members offering portrait commission sittings are Lee Machelak, Ray Hewitt (President), Paul McDonald Smith OAM, Fiona Bilbrough, Max Wilks, Peter Smales, Bill Caldwell and Clive Sinclair.
