Sali Herman (1898-1993)
Back home, Sali Herman, Australian War Memorial, ART22893

Herman was one of seven official war artists appointed in March 1945 to cover the final stages of the Second World War. As an émigré artist he soon allied himself with the emerging modernist movement in art, and was able to impart his first-hand experience of European modernism to Australian artists. With his use of strong forms and colours, he explores the universal theme of soldiers returning from war.
