William Dobell lived in this house from until his death in , and became known as one of the area’s leading ‘identities’. He was born in Newcastle, where his father was a builder Robert Dobell built this house. William demonstrated artistic talents at an early age, and in the s he studied at Julian Ashton’s school in Sydney. In the s he studied in England and travelled throughout Europe, developing a style inspired by the Dutch Masters, as well as the English artist Walter Sickert and the French modernist Chaim Soutine.
He returned to Sydney in , where he acquired a circle of admirers and honed his skills both as a satirical artist and portrait painter; his work was always within the social realist direction and never abstract. Satire and portraiture were at the centre of the controversy that erupted when Dobell received the Archibald Prize in for his portrait of his friend Joshua Smith. Conservative artists, still fighting the anti-modernist battle, argued that the painting was a caricature of Smith rather than a ‘likeness’, and therefore did not qualify for the portrait prize; the Archibald Prize was, and still is, lucrative and highly coveted.
The arguments reached the Supreme Court of New South Wales, becoming Australia’s first legal consideration of artistic values, in many ways mirroring a similar modernist-conservative debate between Whistler and John Ruskin in England nearly a century before. The case was eventually dismissed, after much popular debate about the issue; the verdict was greeted as a victory for the modern movement, although Dobell was never really a modernist painter.
Dobell continued to paint his portraits until his death, was knighted, and became a venerable figure in Australian art; many of his idiosyncratic works can be seen at his Wangi Wangi house, and in nearly every gallery in Australia. The main occupation in the Lake Macquarie region today is fishing, water-skiing, and cruising the lake on such ships as the Wangi Queen and the Macquarie Lady, which leave from the wharves at Toronto and Belmont.
