The third in our "Bay Art Revival" series, this edition of Russell Drysdale has been fully revised to integrate the paintings into the body of the text and includes a new introduction by author Lou Klepac, written to put Drysdale's iconic paintings into a contemporary context. This book traces the career of the unusual and remarkably gifted Drysdale, discussing both the sources of his inspiration and the scope of his achievement. It features more than 150 colour plates that illustrate the work of this popular and significant Australian artist.
Lou Klepac is an art historian, curator and founder of The Beagle Press. He was Deputy Director at the Art Gallery of Western Australia from 1974-80.
