Dates of existence



Crooke preliminary studies at Swinburne Technical College were interrupted by army service in Western Australia, North Queensland and Borneo. After the war his work included two years on Thursday Island. The portrayal of island life that emerged soon brought his work recognition. In 1969 he won the Archibald Prize with an expressionist study of writer George Johnston. He was responsible for the dust-jacket for Poor Fellow My Country by Xavier Herbert -- adapted from The new McCulloch's encyclopaedia of Australian Art
