Description

William Dobell (1899-1970) enjoyed a career spanning over forty years. One of Australia's most dynamic artists, his work is highly regarded and held in collections around the world. William Dobell: An Artist's Life traces his path to success from his first lessons at the Sydney Art School in 1925 to his ten years in England and Europe from 1929 to 1939 and finally to his lakeside home in Wangi Wangi, New South Wales. Insightful text is accompanied by over 150 images, including such iconic artworks as Portrait of an Artist, Margaret Olley, The yellow glove and Storm Approaching Wangi. The result is a fascinating tribute to this most beloved of artists and an important contribution to Australia's cultural heritage.

The author

After moving to Wangi Wangi, New South Wales, Elizabeth Donaldson and her husband Robert found themselves living just seven houses down from Dobell House, William Dobell's former residence and today a lasting memorial to his life and art. This sparked her fascination with the artist and Liz became an active volunteer there in 2000. She has held numerous positions, including Vice President, Publicity Officer and Funding and Grants Co-ordinator.
