Reginald Cecil Grahame (Rah) Fizelle is known for his influential role in the development of Modernism in Australia during the 1930s and 1940s. Despite being badly injured during WWI, he went on to study and exhibit art both in Australia and overseas. An enthusiastic and active supporter of a number of art societies, he was the first president of the Contemporary Art Society of Australia, and president of the Australian Water-Colour Institute. During the 1930s he and Grace Crowley conducted classes at their Sydney George Street studio, which became the most advanced centre of modern art in Australia. Ref: ADB.
