The Art Gallery of the Trustees of New Wales has unanimously chosen a portrait called Moby Dickens, which will receive Australia’s most famous art award on Friday, which has a prize of $ 100,000.

Mr Douglas was among 52 finalists whose work included portraits of Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman and former Midnight Oil politician and frontman Peter Garrett.
