Graeme Inson, artist, studied in Melbourne with Max Meldrum and became a leading exponent of Meldrum’s methods at his own school, established in Sydney in 1955. He held many solo exhibitions in Sydney into the 1990s. Inson was commissioned for many official portraits and was twice a finalist in the Doug Moran prize. He entered 41 works in the Archibald Prize between 1952 and 1979. The National Portrait Gallery acquired his 1980 portrait of Gough Whitlam in 2002, and his 1953 portrait of Brian Fitzpatrick in 2008.
