John Olsen: An Artist’s Life
Joint winner of the 2015 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards for Non-Fiction This landmark biography by Darleen Bungey, the author of the celebrated biography of Arthur Boyd, graphically depicts the forces that drove John Olsen to become one of the country’s greatest artists. An exhilarating book, both trenchant and tender, it strips away the veneer of showmanship and fame to show the substance of a painter driven by a need to depict his country’s landscape as Australians had never seen it before.
