Biography/History

Artist, poet, and playwright. Rodney Armour Milgate was born in 1934. Milgate established himself as a painter and became a major figure in Australian art. He has held over forty solo exhibitions and his artwork is represented throughout Australia, the United Kingdom and United States. Described as both reflective and philosophical, Milgate's art often explores themes of spirituality. He has won the Blake Prize for Religious Art three times. An early recipient of the Harkness Fellowhip Award, he won the D'Arcy Morris Award in 1970. As a poet and playwright, he has had verse published widely and his play, A refined look at existence, was first produced in Sydney in October 1966.
