- Charles Blackman is a major mid-twentieth-century painter who has had an important link with Queensland since his first visit to Brisbane in 1948. This boutique publication explores the connections between Blackman and artists such as Sidney Nolan, Judith Wright, Jack McKinney, Lawrence Hope and others, in and around Brisbane at that time. Richly illustrated across 104 pages, this delightful, compact monograph features three essays, exploring Blackman’s years in Queensland, focusing on the artist’s creative friendships with painters and poets, his connection with the young artists of the Brisbane-based Miya Studio and Barjai writers, and revealing the findings of recent conservation research into the artist’s materials and techniques.
