Oscar Namatjira (1922-1991)

Oscar was born in 1922. He attended mission school before joining the Army Labor Gang in 1942. Three years later he returned to the mission and took up painting. One of Oscars first jobs was to drive his fathers truck. Oscar would drive Albert to his various painting spots and leave him with painting supplies. Oscar would then head off to visit the camps of family and friends. This routine lasted for about a year until the truck became so damaged from the rough dirt tracks that it had to be garaged.

Albert Namatjira (1902-1959)

Albert Namatjira, born Elea, the first son of Namatjira and Ljukutja of the Arrernte Tribe at the Hermannsburg mission on the 28th of July 1902. Three years later on Christmas Eve 1905 he was baptized and given the name, Albert, in the same ceremony his parents were given the names, Jonathon and Emilie. It was not customary for Western Arrernte people to have a second name. For this reason Alberts first paintings were signed, Albert. It was not until Albert started exhibiting that it was thought appropriate for him to have a second name. He took his fathers original name and signed his works, Albert Namatjira.
