Summary
Patrick McCaughey has lived and worked for half his professional life overseas and for all that time says the pull of Australian art on his imagination has never ceased. He wondered how he could best show the world why and how the island continent with its small population has made such a distinctive and powerful contribution to the world of art. This book is his answer. (paraphrase of cover material and prologue). Annotation pending
