Will Ashton Lookout

Named in honour of the well-known artist and Waverton resident, Sir John William Ashton. Prior to being knighted in 1960, he received an OBE in 1941. Will Ashton began his art career when he studied art in his father’s studio in Adelaide until 1899, at which time he travelled to Europe to paint and continue his studies. On his return to Sydney he established himself as a painter of European subjects based on his European travels. In 1906 he won the Wynne Prize for an Australian landscape (he also won this prize in 1930 and 1939). He was the Director of the Art Gallery of NSW from 1937 to 1944.
