Herbert Raberaba (1920-1980)

Herbert was born on the 14th of April 1920.

He began painting in the late 1940s. By the 1950s his work was being widely exhibited in the southern states with the other Hermannsburg artists.

In 1951 he exhibited with twelve other Aranda artists in an exhibition held by Rex Battarbee. His best pictures have a strong atmospheric quality whilst later works are charged with raking light and vivid colours.
