Overview

The Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship, valued at $60,000, provides financial assistance for a visual artist at the start of their career to undertake a one to two year program of study or training overseas.

 

The Scholarship was renamed the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship in 1997 on receiving support from the Helen Lempriere Bequest, managed by Perpetual. The Bequest was established under the will of Mr Wood to commemorate his wife, Helen Lempriere, who died in 1991 at the age of 83. Helen Lempriere was a Melbourne-born artist who established her professional reputation while living in Europe from 1950 to 1966. She is represented in public collections in Australia including those of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
