Often overlooked because of her famous father, Hans Heysen, Nora was born in 1911, the fourth of eight children, and grew up at the Cedars, near Hahndorf. She and her father had a verbal agreement not to trespass, too much, into each other's territories. She would leave the landscapes to him, and stick to portraiture and still life. She was the first woman to win the Archibald Prize for portraiture and the first Australian woman to be appointed as an official war artist. This print references both her 1938 Archibald-winning portrait of Adine Michele Elink Schuurman, and one of her many self-portraits, this one from 1932 when she was 21. Part of an ongoing series of South Australian Icons.
