Book DescriptionPainting was a vital source of inspiration for Australia's beloved novelist. This essential biography traces the influence of 20th-century Australian artists and European Modernist and Romantic artists, in his life and work. Based on entirely new research, this is the first study to make a strong connection between White's work and the visual arts. Also discussed are issues that White was deeply interested and involved in, such as the development of an open and diverse Australian culture;the importance of Aboriginal culture and feeling for the land; nuclear disarmament; the Green Bans; an Australian republic; antimaterialism; and spirituality and its creative expression.
