Emma Minnie Beckett Boyd (1858-1936) the founder of the Boyd artistic dynasty

Emma Minnie Beckett Boyd Biography (1858-1936)  Share your joy in art of Emma Minnie  Beckett Boyd, the founder of the Boyd artistic dynasty.   Share your joy on twitter in art of Emma Minnie  Beckett Boyd, the founder of the Boyd artistic dynasty   EmailEmma Minnie  Beckett BOYD (1858-1936) a successful painter, known as Minnie.

Emma Minnie Beckett, known as Minnie, was born at Collingwood in 1858. She was second daughter of William Arthur Beckett and his wife of Emma Mills Beckett, the heiress of John Mills fortune.

Emma Minnie Beckett was a successful painter and married another highly regarded painter of his day, Arthur Merric Boyd (1862-1940). They came to Melbourne in the mid 1870s and settled at Brighton and had five children.

Emma Minnie was lively, beautiful, cultivated and compassionate, she painted landscapes in Tasmania and many seascapes, but she had a particular talent for genre. At their farm at Yarra Glen she successfully painted the four seasons in a frieze around the dining-room. They both exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1891 after which they moved briefly to Paris. On their return to Melbourne in 1894 they lived at Sandringham. In 1898 their works were included in the Exhibition of Australian Art in London at the Grafton Galleries. The family travelled overseas from time to time, and spent summers in Tasmania where the scenery inspired some of Boyd's best work; they exhibited regularly with the Victorian Artists' Society.  Many critics believe that Emma Minnie Beckett (1858-1936) work to be superior to her husband's Arthur Merric Boyd (1862-1940).

Emma Minnie husband, Arthur Merric Boyd was born in New Zealand, son of Captain John Theodore Thomas Boyd and his wife Lucy Charlotte Martin.

Arthur Merric Boyd was an artist of charm and ability, who painted best in water-colour, without reaching the heights of his contemporaries in the Heidelberg school. While he was friendly with Frederick McCubbin and E. Phillips Fox, he did not associate much with other artists. According to his son Martin (1893-1972), the novelist, Arthur Merric Boyd was, if a little remote, just and generous, with a tolerant and enlightened way of bringing up children.

After Emma Minnie Beckett death at Sandringham on 13 September 1936, her husband Arthur Merric Boyd lived at Rosebud where he was often joined by his grandson Arthur Boyd (1920-1999) to whom he gave painting lessons.

Emma Minnie Beckett husband, Arthur Merric Boyd died at Murrumbeena on 30 July 1940, survived by three sons William Merric Boyd, known as Merric Boyd (potter), Theodore Penleigh Boyd (painter) and Martin Beckett Boyd (writer) and a daughter Helen Beckett Boyd (painter).

It can be said that the Boyd artistic dynasty really begin with the 14 January 1886 marriage of Emma Minnie Beckett  (1858-1936) and Arthur Merric Boyd (1862-1940), both were established painters at the time of their marriage.

They had five children, including William Merric Boyd (1888-1959), known as Merric Boyd, who later become father of Australia's most renown and influential artist Arthur Merric Bloomfield Boyd  (1920-1999) known as Arthur Boyd.
