Detail photos for this Artwork

Pro Hart was born in 1928, and when he was a young boy, he spent his early years on a sheep station “Larloona”, about 20 kilometres east of Menindee in the far west of New South Wales.

“The Small Holding Yard” portrays scenes from his childhood memories of growing up on a sheep property and being free to explore the farm and the surrounding outback country. Pro captures the day to day running of the property with farmers, and one of his favourite motifs, black dogs, moving sheep into a holding yard.

Life on outback properties are a common theme of Pro Hart’s.  The portrayal of farm tasks, the rich earth tones of inland Australia, and the spindly gums in his paintings are distinctive Australian imagery which makes Pro Hart’s style instantly recognisable and an appealing iconography of the bush.
