"This book shows the long visual development and struggles of one of Australia's most individual artists. It traces his career from his early work to the first 'Haymarket' series in the early 1960s, the landscapes of Sydney ('Portraits of Sydney') the unnamed portraits painted in Spain, his New York work 1967-9, the second 'Haymark' paintings, his portraits and the recent painting 1983-88. The text reveals lifelong passion for painting and for the city, its people and its poetry. It shows, too, his search for intuitive truths without which his talent, his dedication and his rich imagination would mean little."--BOOK JACKET.
