Deborah Beck will discuss the extraordinary life of Rayner Hoff (1894-1937) − his influence on Australian art and culture, his family life, and his substantial contribution as a teacher at the National Art School in Darlinghurst. Best known for his sculptures on the Anzac War Memorial in Hyde Park, Hoff became a prominent star of the art world in Sydney before his tragic death at the age of 42.

 

About the speaker: Deborah Beck is an historian, author and artist who has exhibited her work widely, and has written three books, including Set in Stone, which won a NSW Premier’s History Award in 2012. Her book Rayner Hoff: the life of a sculptor, (NewSouth Publishers) was launched by Barry Humphries in Hoff’s former studio in March 2018.
