Bundanon

Arthur and Yvonne Boyd were instantly enchanted by the Bundanon Homestead and landscape.

In 1979 the Boyds purchased the Homestead, building Arthur’s studio at a short distance from the Homestead.

Open to the public every Sunday.

Homestead

Immerse yourself in the Boyds’ family history at the Homestead, intact with the art and furniture installed by Arthur and Yvonne.

See the gilt and ebony cabinet, passed down the generations from Arthur’s Spanish great-great-grandmother, Lucy Dominicu de Guzman. The large cedar cabinet is filled with ceramics by Arthur’s father Merric, collected over many years by Arthur.

Learn about the generations of the Boyd family through seeing their portraits.

Arthur Boyd’s Studio

Built by Arthur in 1981, the Studio remains intact as Arthur last left it.

See the paint brushes made from Arthur’s daughters’ hair to produce fine line work. In the corner sits a paint grinding and mixing machine, with which Arthur grinded his own paints. Tubes of oil paints lay stacked, including Art Spectrum’s ‘Boyd Blue’ named after Arthur.

The last work completed by Arthur in his studio in 1997, Nodding Green Hood, remains on the easel.

Open every Sunday.
