Biography
  • Geoffrey Keith Townshend was a cartoonist, watercolourist, art teacher and heraldic engraver. He was born in Auckland. After studying at Elam Art School and working in Auckland as a heraldic engraver he came to Sydney in 1910. He continued his 'bread-and-butter' job while studying art with Dattilo Rubbo in c.1912. He contributed to the Bulletin from 1911 as a result of being introduced to Percy Lindsay, who also influenced his style. Most of his Bulletin cartoons seem to be of the 1930s and wartime '40s, done when he was a part-time teacher at East Sydney Technical College. Townshend also painted watercolours. He was vice-president of both the Royal Art Society (NSW) and the Australian Watercolour Institute. He lived in Dee Why and for many years was on the teaching staff of East Sydney Technical College. McCulloch states that his landscapes were influenced by John Singer Sargent's watercolours and by the work of Winslow Homer. He was married to Dorothy Reynolds, a potter. He was an AGNSW trustee in 1959-61. He died at Dee Why on 15 September 1969. (Ref.: Dictionary of Australian artists online).
