Unstill Life: Art, Politics and Living with Clifton Pugh
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.

Lionel Lindsay: An Artist and His Family
Book Number: 64825
Chatto & Windus December 1988 8vo hardcover 254pp. index, b/w illus. Very good, light foxing to edge of text block. / Very good d/w. This is the first biography of Australian artist Lionel Lindsay (1874-1961). It also provides a portrait of an extraordinary family, especially Lionel's artist brother Norman. Lionel is considered one of Australia's leading artists and his etchings, wood engravings and watercolours hang in galleries across the world. He was also a man of letters, but for most of his life he was overshadowed by his brother, Norman, considered the most popular artist and writer of his generation. The stormy relationship of the two brothers forms the heart of this biography, which follows Lionel's fortunes from the small gold-mining town of Creswick, to Melbourne in the 1890s and his journeys to Spain, England and Italy. It was not until years later at the age of 52 that he achieved fame in his home country and was knighted by Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies, a close personal friend. The work is based on original research, newly discovered letters and documents and is illustrated with photographs and reproductions of Lindsay's major works.
