Australian Artist Richard Larter Dies

australian artist larter died

London born Australian artist Richard Larter died on Friday at the age of 85. The highly celebrated artist has works in most major museums throughout the country. His work was pop inspired, pointillist, and even abstract, but he was probably most well known for his female nudes, some of which are graphically erotic. Many of his nudes were inspired by his wife Pat Larter who passed away in 1996.

Here’s a sampling of his work..
