Unstill Life: Art, Politics and Living with Clifton Pugh

Unstill Life: Art, Politics and Living with Clifton Pugh
ISBN: 9781741754773
Book Number: 65538
Allen & Unwin, 2008 8vo softcover 368pp Very good, light foxing to endpapers & edges. This portrait of a unique partnership is also the story of a pivotal time and place in Australian art and politics. Judith and Clifton Pugh met in September 1970. He was an artist with an international reputation; she was 20 years younger than him and had just joined the Australian Labor Party. Their decade together was a heady mix of painting, policy, and pleasure where the boundaries between political, social, and art worlds were blurred, reflecting the rapidly changing face of Australian society. But there was a darker side to this successful partnership-for the first time, Judith reveals the complexity of a relationship haunted by wartime experiences. This is a gritty behind-the-scenes look at Australia's most radical government, about the days when the likes of Gough Whitlam, Don Dunstan, and Christina Stead came to stay and Bert and Barbara Tucker were among their closest friends. With a unique female perspective on the times, it's about influencing change and balancing power on both grand and intimate levels.
