Ernest Buckmaster (1897-1968), artist, was born on 3 July 1897 at Hawthorn, Melbourne, eldest son of Harry Amos Buckmaster, a straw-hat manufacturer from England, and his Victorian-born wife Letitia Martha, née Chandler. A puny lad, Ernest was taken by his grandparents to help on their mixed farm at Box Hill until he was 14. He attended the local state school where he enjoyed nothing more than drawing, in which his precocious talent was recognized from the age of 4. In 1913 he was apprenticed to James Beament, a signwriter and amateur artist. He arrived two days late for the ceremony, but completed twenty-five pictures for the Australian War Memorial. In 1951 his book, The Art of Ernest Buckmaster, was published by Lothian. He won the Albury (Regional Art Centre) prize in 1950 and 1963. Buckmaster never deviated from his convictions or from his chosen techniques.
