The Life and Times of Hugh Ramsay: Essendon's Most Famous Painter

Painter Hugh Ramsay grew up in Essendon and was considered to be one of the great up and coming artists of his generation. Tragically his career came to an end when he was struck down with tuberculosis at age 29. But he left a legacy of brilliant and dynamic painting.
