Margaret Hannah Olley AC (24 June 1923 – 26 July 2011) is a famous Australian painter. Margaret Olley participated in more than 90 major solo exhibitions. Margaret was twice the subject of an Archibald Prize by William Dobell in 1948 winning painting and by Ben Quilty in 2011 and also was the subject of numerous paintings by many of her artist friends, including Russell Drysdale. On 10 June 1991 in the Queen's Birthday Honours list, Margaret Olley was made a Member of the Order of Australia 'for service as an artist and to the promotion of art'. On 12 June 2006, Olley was awarded Australia's highest civilian honour, the Companion of the Order, 'for service as one of Australia's most distinguished artists.

Margaret Olley was born in Lismore, New South Wales. She attended Somerville House in Brisbane during her high school years. She was so focused on art that she dropped one French class in order to take another art lesson.

Her work concentrated on still life. In 1997 a major retrospective of her work was organised by the Art Gallery of New South Wales. She received the inaugural Mosman Art Prize in 1947.

On 13 July 2006 she donated more works to the Art Gallery of New South Wales; her donations included more than 130 works worth $7 million. Olley died at her home in Paddington in July 2011, aged 88.

Margaret Olley was twice the subject of an Archibald Prize winning painting; the first by William Dobell in 1948 and the other by Ben Quilty in 2011. She was also the subject of paintings by many of her artist friends, including Russell Drysdale.

On 10 June 1991, in the Queen's Birthday Honours list, Olley was made a Member of the Order of Australia 'for service as an artist and to the promotion of art'.

On 12 June 2006, she was awarded Australia's highest civilian honour, the Companion of the Order, 'for service as one of Australia's most distinguished artists, for support and philanthropy to the visual and performing arts, and for encouragement of young and emerging artists'.

Born in Lismore in 1923, Margaret Olley studied at the Brisbane Central Technical College then at East Sydney Technical College graduating in 1945 with first class honours. She went on to study and travel extensively - to France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, China, Russia and Cambodia. During the 1940's she became a prominent figure in the Sydney art scene and joined other artists such as Donald Friend at Hill End.

Olley held her first solo exhibition in 1948 and has held at least one exhibition annually. She is known for her colourful interiors and still life paintings. She is also widely known for being the subject of the famous William Dobell portrait which won the Archibald Prize in 1948.

Olley's close friend, the Australian entertainer Barry Humphries writes "A visit to Margaret Olley is certainly an unforgettable experience. Her house is a series of studios, filled burgeoning with furniture, textiles and objects that she incorporates into her ravishing nature mortes. In each room, and in various stages of completion, stands a painting, propped sometimes against a chair, or flung with seeming carelessness upon a sofa - there is no sign of so formal an accoutrement as an easel.

A simple table, covered with gourds and tangerines and upon which might also rest a Turkish pot, a jar of flannel flowers or a dish of desiccated raspberries, stands against a black and gilded Chinese screen. In the foreground, Miss Olley's painting of this subject is casually appended. It is not difficult to image that she was once (in 1959) the proprietrix of an antique store." Margaret Olley is a legend in the art world - both as an artist and a generous philanthropist. Her paintings are highly sought after by public and private collectors both in Australia and all around the world.

In 1991 Margaret Olley was awarded the Australian Office of the Order of Australia (AO) and in 2006 she was awarded the Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) in the Queen's Birthday Honors List.

In 2007, Margaret Olley was appointed a Fellow of the National Art School. She is only the third Fellow to be appointed, joining Peter Rushforth and John Coburn.

Margaret Olley sadly passed away on 26th July 2011 in her home in Paddington, Sydney.

Giclée print on archival 100% rag paper

What is a Giclee Print?  In giclee printing, no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern.

The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.

Giclee (pronounced Gee’clay) is a French term meaning to spray or squirt, which is how an inkjet printer works.

However, it is not the same as a standard desktop inkjet printer, and is much larger. Giclee prints are a little over a metre wide and are often affectionately referred to as a “knitting machine” as they look very similar.
