Melbourne : Thames and Hudson, 2016 (first published by Macmillan, 2007). Quarto, illustrated boards lettered in gold, pp. 344, illustrated. An extensive journey of Olsen’s artistic relationship with the Australian landscape. A fine copy, as new, of an elusive title.

‘This volume, companion to Teeming With Life (2005), which contained this artist’s complete printmaking oeuvre of more than 900 editions, presents a selection of several hundred paintings and drawings created over more than four decades.

Perhaps more than any other post-war artists, John Olsen and Fred Williams have helped Australians see their unique landscape and its features with fresh vision. The several hundred glorious reproductions, accompanied by an historical overview and comments drawn from the artist’s diaries, is certain to provide the viewer with a unique vision of Australia and particularly the spectacular ‘outback’ – as well as honour the artist in his eightieth year.’
