Before 1930, Buzacott had experimented with linocuts, lithographs and etchings, most of his prints showing his sympathy with the working class. In 1936 he studied at Colarossi’s in Paris and then the Grosvenor School in London. He was greatly influenced by the wood-engravings of lain MacNab and on his return to Melbourne in 1938, reported “London had become the centre of wood engraving”. Buzacott moved to Queensland in 1949 where he lived until his death in 1977.
