Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

Our random article today is Tom Roberts.

Thomas William "Tom" Roberts (8 March 1856 – 14 September 1931) was an Australian artist and a key member of the Heidelberg School, also known as Australian Impressionism. After attending art schools in Melbourne, he left for Europe in 1881 to further his training, and returned home in 1885, "primed with whatever was the latest in art". He did much to promote en plein air painting and encouraged other artists to capture the national life of Australia. While he is best known for his "national narratives", among them Shearing the Rams (1890), A break away! (1891) and Bailed Up (1895), he also achieved renown as a portraitist.
