John Russell was a remarkable yet little-known Australian artist, who was active and influential within French avant-garde circles in the late 19th century. Once known as Australia’s ‘lost’ impressionist, John Russell was a close friend of Vincent van Gogh and Auguste Rodin, taught impressionist colour theory to Henri Matisse and dined with Claude Monet.
