Award-winning artist Vincent Namatjira tells the life story of his great-grandfather, Albert Namatjira, one of Australia’s most iconic artists.
Stunning artwork from an Archibald Prize winner.

Vincent’s witty and moving paintings are accompanied by evocative text, which records the pivotal moments in Albert’s life.
In telling his great-grandfather’s story, Vincent builds a compelling picture of the times and conditions in which Albert lived and worked, capturing his triumphs and tragedy against a backdrop of social change and historical injustices.
This poignant children’s book provides an important tool for discussion about Australia’s art history, and a launching pad for exploration of the key moments in Australia’s Aboriginal Rights movement.
Albert Namatjira is a unique children’s picture book of both artistic beauty and historical importance, and will appeal to children, art collectors and those looking for a special gift. The artwork in this book is part of a body of work called Albert’s Story that was acquired by QAGOMA – Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art. Well suited to the Australian Curriculum with teacher resources available age range 6 to 12.
