Vaughan Murray Griffin (1903 – 1992) has made a significant, if somewhat underappreciated, contribution to the story of Australian art through his celebrated modernist prints; his landscape painting and his influence as a teacher. This small survey of his works highlights how Griffin looked to nature as his inspiration, as seen in his skilled prints of birds and his atmospheric landscapes. A further consideration in his oeuvre is a spiritual influence giving a dimension beyond the earthly to his art.
