The Art of M. Napier Waller
"Although Mervyn Napier Waller (1893-1972) was one of Australia's most prolific artists, turning his hand to linocuts, watercolours, mural paintings, mosaics and stained glass among other media, his work stands apart from the more familiar movements in Australian art and had been unjustly neglected. From an early use of mediaval sources, he turned to predominantly classical and mythological themes, and then evolved an idealization of contemporary subjects."--BOOK JACKET.
