N. NAPURRULA c.1938 – 2013

Papunya Tula Artists are sad to announce the passing of N Napurrula. As many would know, Napurrula was a dialysis patient for many years with the ‘Purple House’ (Western Desert Dialysis). PTA would like to thank the Purple House staff for supporting Napurrula at Kintore while she was receiving treatment and also for the enormous amount of additional palliative care they provided.
Napurrula was one of the company’s most high profile artists and was dearly loved by her family as well as all the staff here at PTA. She has left us with some wonderful memories and a countless number of extraordinary paintings.
She will be sorely missed by all of us.
