Born in Perth and raised on cattle stations in the Kimberleys, Elizabeth Durack developed enduring friendships with the indigenous people of the Ord River Region, which greatly influenced her work. She continued to live in remote parts of Western Australia, working as an artist. Her first exhibition was held in 1946 and she had over 65 solo exhibitions, as well as group shows.

Dyeline was an early copying process developed in the 1950s. It was mainly used for architectural blueprints, and had a similar appearance to lithography, making it an inexpensive alternative. Andy Warhol made hand-coloured dyeline prints in the early part of his career.
