Biographies

Federation era Melbourne painter, cartoonist, illustrator, etcher and journalist. Nuttall was colour-blind, so specialised in black and white work and monochrome paintings from which his prints were often made.

painter, cartoonist, illustrator, etcher and journalist, was born in Fitzroy, Melbourne on 6 September 1872, only son of the six children of Mr & Mrs James Charles Nuttall of Harpurhey, Lancashire.

Reproductions of his The First Test Match (1904) sold in hundreds throughout Australia, while the print from his monochrome Opening of the First Commonwealth Parliament by H.R.H. the Prince of Wales (1902), which contained 400 likenesses of those present (cf Tom Roberts’ “big picture”), was also extremely popular.
