William Dobell: An Artist's Life
Publication Date 1 Jan 2010
OverviewThis high-quality, exquisitely produced book is a celebration of the life and art of William Dobell, considered to be one of Australia's greatest artists and the first to win both the Wynne Prize for landscapes and the Archibald Prize for portraiture in the same year. But William Dobell was also a quintessential Aussie larrikin - more at home in the local pub with his mates than on the international stage. He also seemed to find controversy wherever he went, famously being sued by fellow competitors after winning the Archibald Prize in 1943. Lavishly illustrated with artworks, personal photographs and newspaper clippings, William Dobell paints a compelling portrait of both the man and the artist.
