Description:
Grace Crowley (1890-1979) was an Australian artist, born at Forrest Lodge, Cobbadah, New South Wales. At about the age of 13 Crowley's parents sent one of her pen and ink drawings to the New Idea magazine and she won a prize, but her career as an artist was not wholeheartedly supported by her family.

Crowley studied in Paris in 1927 with the Cubist André Lhote, and took part in Exhibition I in 1939, the self-proclaimed first show of abstract art in Australia. Others in her circle included Ralph Balson, Dorrit Black, Rah Fizelle, Frank Hiner and Anne Dangar.

There was an exhibition of her work at the National Gallery of Australia in December 2006 to May 2007 called Grace Crowley - Being modern.
