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.

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 Greg Allen, Fiona Bilbrough, Bill Caldwell, Jennifer Fyfe, Ray Hewitt, Amanda Hyatt, Lee Machelak, Paul McDonald Smith OAM (President), Clive Sinclair, Peter Smales and Max Wilks.
