The Life and Work of Russell Drysdale

Front Cover
Murdoch Books, 1996 - Art, Modern - 383 pages
"Russell Drysdale is one of the giants of Australian painting. Although his paintings so uniquely characterize their country of orgin, they can also be seen as universally valid images of man and landscape. Original in conception and sophisticated in execution, his work marks the attainment of a particular level of maturity in Australian art. By the time of his death in 1981, at the age of 69, he had become one of the most popular and best-loved arts the country has produced. The first modern Australian artist to exhibit in London, Drysdale met with immediate success there and was at once recognized as the leading visual interpreter of Australian life and landscape."--BOOK JACKET.
