Bill Coleman (1922 - 1993)

 
               


       

William (Bill) Coleman was a Victorian etcher, painter and illustrator. He studied at the Melbourne Technical College George Bell School, and exhibited with the Victorian Artists Society. His book illustrations include  'Natural History Picture Book for Children' 1861 and 'Our Garden Friends' 1863. During his career he also worked for Mintons Art Pottery, designing tiles and plates.  

A major retrospective exhibition in 1986 at the Bendigo, Ballarat and Sale Art Galleries brought critical acclaim.  Coleman's art is highly collectible, and has steadily risen over the years.
