John Brack (10 May 1920 – 11 February 1999) was an Australian painter, and a member of the Antipodeans group. According to one critic, Brack's early works captured the idiosyncrasies of their time "more powerfully and succinctly than any Australian artist before or since. Brack forged the iconography of a decade on canvas as sharply as Barry Humphries did on stage."Thomas, David. Three of the Players, 1953 , Deutscher and Hackett. Retrieved 12 November 2012. When Laughing Child was presented for auction in 2020, the artist's daughter (and subject of the painting) said that the biggest insult for her father was "when people bought his paintings for investment only – reducing all his work and thought down to money and nothing else."
