Margaret Olley was noted as much for her vivacity and charm, as for the formidable still lifes and intimate paintings which she produced throughout her life.
This prolific Australian artist was the subject of more than 90 solo exhibitions, and memorably, also the subject of two Archibald winning paintings. And now, Barry Pearce, long-time friend of Olley and the former Australian Art curator of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, has compiled a gorgeous collection of her work, her quotes and interviews in its full colour glory.
With a foreword by Edmund Capon entitled The Amazing Margaret Olley
, this book has been compiled with love and respect for a woman who has had a profound impact on the Australian art world.
A must have for appreciators of Margaret Olley’s work and of Australian art in general.
