Dieter Prussner was a post-WWII migrant to Victoria, nationalised in 1959 when his address was given as Belmont, a suburb of Geelong. No information known about his training, but he was an avid aviator, active in the flyable model aircraft scene of Melbourne in the 1960’s onward. He is recorded as being the creator of an accurate scale model of the ‘Silver Centenary’, a unique Australian-designed & built in Beverley, Western Australia between 1929 and 1930 by a local named Selby Ford. The scale model Prussner made is still on display.

No other information regarding his art is recorded at present, although he was on various Rotary art show boards in Melbourne, sometimes as a judge. His address on the label on the back of this work is ‘Mt Dandenong Tourist Road, Sassafrass’.

Como House” is the gracious 1847 city house of the Armytage Family in Melbourne, Australia, currently managed as a house museum by the National Trust, Australia.
