Product Overview

Fred Williams (1927-1982) revolutionized the way Australians see and think about the environment. This book showcases Williams's strength as a painter and includes a wide range of oil paintings and luminous gouaches, along with material from the artist's diaries and his remarkable China sketchbook.

Williams's special talent was abstracting from the real or, as he put it, seeing the world "in terms of paint." Readers will enjoy traveling with Williams from the 1940s to his last works in 1981--from the figure studies of his student days in Melbourne and London, to the groundbreaking landscapes, beachscapes, and waterfalls of regional Victoria, and to subjects further afield in Bass Strait, the Cape York Peninsula, and the magnificent Pibara region in western Australia. Also included are intimate portraits of family and friends.

This engaging publication is a fitting tribute to an outstanding artist. The clarity and richness of Williams's distinctive artistic vision that is his legacy will continue to inspire generations to come.
