Born in Ballarat, Victoria in 1900, Victor Greenhalgh was a sculptor and teacher. He studied in Ballarat, and from 1938 taught at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. He greatly influenced tertiary art education and was one of the first Victorian sculptors to adopt a modern style. His commissioned work includes a statue of King George V and eight busts of Australian prime ministers which were placed in the Ballarat public gardens. Greenhalgh won a number of awards and his work is represented in the National Gallery of Victoria and regional collections.

Since 1970 we have recorded only one work being sold at auction by this artist, which was in 1989.
