Roy de Maistre was born as Leroy Livingstone de Mestre in Australia. Known for his early experiments with "color-music", his styles changed from abstract painting in his early years to early modernism and later to cubism. De Maistre studied art in Sydney. Between the two World Wars he lived abroad except for a brief return to Sydney in London. De Mestre changed his name during this time because of his relationship with the philosopher Joseph de Maistre. Roy de Maistre is still regarded as one of the most important Australian born painters of his era. His father Étienne was a well-known thoroughbred racehorse trainer.
