Many paintings by Brett Whiteley, who was an Australian abstract artist, were influenced by landscape painter Lloyd Rees. The flowing strokes, vivid colors, and distinctive lines of the scenes he painted brought the beauty of Australia to the world. Brett Whiteley's artwork was not limited to painting, as he was also a talented graphic artist and sculptor.

Brett Whiteley's painting, Untitled Red Painting, was sold to the Tate Gallery when he was only 22, making him the youngest artist the gallery had ever purchased from. Brett Whiteley's prints include lithographs and etchings. In 1977, Whiteley won the Wynne Prize, which is a prestigious Australian award for landscape paintings. He was made an Officer of the Order of Australia in 1991 in recognition of his art.
