Tasmanian Painter Max Angus

Tasmanian painter Max Angus may be Australia's oldest living practicing artist, with a new exhibition to celebrate his 100th birthday.
Prolific landscape artist Max Angus celebrated his 100th birthday last month with an exhibition of his latest works.
The artist is still painting every week and will show a selection of works in Hobart the day after his birthday.
The celebrated artist is best known for his watercolour landscapes.
"As Monet once said, works done from nature have an immediacy and quality about them, that have a life scarcely ever attained in the studio," Mr Angus said.
Despite being 100 years old, Mr Angus does not have any plans to put away the paintbrushes.

He has been painting for as long as he can remember.
