Obituary: Rosalie Gascoigne

ROSALIE GASCOIGNE was one of Australia's leading avant-garde artists. She was also a phenomenon. She did not begin her artistic career until she was in her fifties. She had her first solo exhibition in 1974, at the age of 57. Her vision and originality were recognised at once. The show was an immediate critical and commercial success. From that moment on, while others might have been thinking of retirement and a quiet old age, she continued to develop an extraordinary body of work, introducing a new note into Australian art, and forging an international reputation.
