An introduction to the life and work of this Australian artist. Twelve paintings are reproduced in color.This is the "revised and updated 3rd printing" of the 1979 original edition.
From the back cover:
Over a period of more than seventy years Norman Lindsay produced a prodigious volume of work. His etchings place him amongst the world's most highly regarded exponents of the medium and his pen drawings are masterpieces of draughtsmanship and control. However, these represent a mere fraction of Lindsay's total output. Oils and watercolours; woodcuts, bookplates and lithographs; novels and book illustrations; carvings and sculptures - to allthese things Norman applied his talents, while at the same time being a principal cartoonist for the Bulletin. For relaxation he painstakingly built ship models, intricate in detail and true to scale.
The World if Norman Lindsay contains a rich selection of Lindsay's work - much of which has not previously been reproduced - as well as numerous photographs taken from family albums and unpublished letters and manuscripts.
This third edition, revised and updated includes over twenty different photographs and an additional chapter.
