PRO HART was without doubt the most enigmatic figure in Australian art of the late twentieth century. The proposition that an individual could be considered a near genius by some, be recognised and loved by millions, yet scorned, derided or at best ignored by expert opinion was the constant contradiction that marked his life. His works can be found in more Australian homes and collections than any other artist, yet are almost entirely unrepresented in the major galleries at state and national level. Nearly a decade after his death he remains the most recognisable and popular Australian artist, the subject of hundreds of newspaper and magazine stories, TV shows and advertisements. He is however remarkably absent from the fine art media, critical reviews and journals of record. Can one be described as being 'without a doubt the greatest artist in our nation's history', yet also be considered a 'parish pump incompetent', meretricious and a charlatan? That is the paradox of Pro Hart. To be an artist, a one-man industry turning over more than one million dollars a year, yet fly beneath the radar of serious art. He was not alone in that odd corner of the art world, yet he was the extreme and most obvious example. How that situation arose and what it says about Australian art, society and culture is the story to be told. About the AuthorGavin Fry is an arts writer, publisher and museum professional.

He was appointed Deputy Director of the Australian National Maritime Museum, Sydney in 1987 and Secretary to the Centenary of Federation Advisory Committee, Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet in 1994. He is the author of twenty books on Australian art and history and is a publisher of books on art, history and military subjects
