London-born Henri van Raalte studied art under John Singer Sargent, Herbert Dicksee and George Clausen. He began exhibiting at the Royal Academy from 1901 and became an Associate of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers. Van Raalte emigrated to Australia in 1910, first settling in Perth where he taught art and produced a series of “expressive and distinctive drypoints of Australian rural life and landscape featuring gum trees, which established his reputation as a major Australian printmaker.” He was a curator at the Art Gallery of South Australia from 1921 to 1925, and a regular exhibitor with the Australian Painter-Etchers’ Society.
