The 2016 Len Fox Painting Award is a biennial $50,000 acquisitive award at the Castlemaine Art Gallery & Historical Museum. Initiated and funded by Len Fox (1905-2004), this prestigious award commemorates the life and work of his uncle, the influential and internationally recognized Australian born painter, Emanuel Phillips Fox (1865-1915). Known for his plein air, impressionist style, Fox’s paintings are characterized by vibrantly coloured landscapes and scenes of everyday life.
