‘Australia’s most internationally acclaimed artist of his time, Rupert Bunny’s life and career was predominantly spent in France before his return to Australia. Combining research from previously unknown letters and diaries with works from Bunny’s prolific output, David Thomas has created the first comprehensive history of the artist’s life and career.
Over two volumes which include a catalogue of his oils, monotypes, works on paper, embroideries, sketchbooks, signature styles and canvas maker’s stamps together with solo and group exhibitions to date with their catalogues and reviews, The Art of Rupert Bunny is a significant contribution to art history.’ – the publisher.
