Australian artist born in Victoria who won the Archibald Prize in 1932 with a portrait of Sir William Irvine. Buckmaster studied at the National Gallery School in Melbourne. He became a painter of traditional portraits and landscapes with a substantial workrate. His work has been widely popular in Australia and New Zealand; public art galleries in Australia and New Zealand hold large collections of his work. Buckmaster disliked modern art, publicly denigrating it in letters to a newspaper. Buckmaster was a Second World War official war artist for the Australian military's Military History Section. Part of his duties took him to Singapore. Buckmaster's work is on loan to the Windsor Hotel in Melbourne.
