An outstanding program examining the life and work of this great artist based on the recollections of four of his children, including the Archibald Prize winning artist Nora Heysen. It reveals the nature of his consummate artistry, the unexpected variety of his subject matter, his influence on others; his wide network of friends and supporters and his overwhelming concern for the Australian environment.

“In this beautifully shot vide, we see his life’s work in a new perspective” - James Mollison former Director of the National Gallery, Canberra and the National Gallery of Victoria.

“…interesting, factual, and evocative, I recommend it.” Colin Thiele" – Hans Heysen’s biographer: ‘Heysen of Hahndorf’

“An enjoyable and informative video…for middle to senior secondary students” - Interacta –journal of the Art Craft Teachers Association of Australia
