About d’Arcy Doyle

d’Arcy William Doyle (19 November 1932 – 28 August 2001) was a painter of Australian landscapes and historical scenes.

A self-taught painter of Australian landscapes and historical scenes, Doyle was born in Ipswich in 1932.

From an early age he had a keen interest in drawing and wished to be a designer or to be involved in the graphic industry.

He joined the Royal Australian Navy and served seven years, after which he took up full-time painting in 1961.

Doyle has a deep affinity with the Australian bush and his work focuses on horses, sheep, drovers and other farm activities as well as children’s games.

Influenced by Norman Rockwell, the well-known American illustrator, Doyle gives us a nostalgic impression of post-war Brisbane and Ipswich as he recalls it.

His works are very popular and in great demand.
