The most substantial book produced on Lindsay’s oil paintings. Over a period of eighty years Australian artist Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879-1969) painted in oils. Apart from the classical portraits and single figure nudes Lindsay painted from life, he garnered the content of his oils from many sources. These include his own imaginings; writers and poets whose work he admired; historical events; Greek and Roman mythology; piracy and the Spanish Main, and his abhorrence of war. This volume contains one hundred and eighty oil paintings in full colour (including one hundred featured oils), from his first known attempt at age ten to his last, a month before his death. Two hundred and fifty additional supplementary works in a variety of media are reproduced, accompanied by over 55,000 words of text.
