2001 Dobell Drawing Prize
Nicholas Harding has been awarded the 2001 Dobell Prize for Drawing for his work Eddy Avenue (3). Presented by the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation, the Prize was initiated in order to encourage excellence in drawing and draftsmanship.

Harding has had numerous solo exhibitions and has exhibited extensively in group shows including the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes. He has been selected as a finalist for the Archibald prize eight years running and is included this year with his portrait John Bell as King Lear. His work is represented in many public collections including the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Opera House Collection.

The Dobell Prize for Drawing, now in its ninth year, is held simultaneously with the Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prizes. The judge of the 2001 Dobell Prize was Margaret Olley.

The winner receives $10,000, and the winning work is automatically acquired for the Gallery's collection.
