Sir Hans Heysen and The Cedars

When we were in South Australia in November, we when to The Cedars . This is a wonderful old home and containing a fine collection of paintings and drawings by the artist Sir Hans Heysen OBE (8 October 1877 to 2 July 1968). Han Heyson would have to be one of the best landscape artist that Australia has had.
When you walk into, Han Heysen working studio it like stepping back in time , the Studio was built in 1912 and used by painter until his death in 1968,. All his painting, materials and tools, sketches, notes and more, are still as they were when he died.

The Cedars' was the family home and has a rambling cottage garden that seems to go on for miles, the garden are just beautiful. The Cedars is still owned by the Heysen family.
