Lloyd Rees: Painting with Pencil 1930-36

£39.99

Product description

This handsome book, produced in 2016 by the Sydney Living Museums, tells the story of an artist and a city. The book and associated exhibition were inspired by some of Lloyd Rees’s finest drawings and sketches, some of which, being held in public and private collections both in Australia and across the world, have never been exhibited before. They reveal a quieter view of Sydney during the inter-war period and confirm Rees as one of the most important 20th century Australian artists. He captured the quiet and timeless beauty of many cities, in particular his beloved Sydney; its harbour and rocky shorelines, emerging city centre and burgeoning suburbs. The book includes contributions by Dr Caroline Butler-Bowdon, Georgia Connolly, Nicola Teffer, Lou Klepac, Renee Free, Alan Rees.

Lloyd Rees (1895–1988) was an Australian landscape painter who twice won the Wynne Prize for his landscape paintings. His works are mainly preoccupied with the effects of light, and emphasise the harmony between man and nature. Rees's oeuvre is dominated by sketches and paintings,principally of the built environment within the landscape.

Our copy is in immaculate condition, having perhaps been unopened since purchase. An equally immaculate dust jacket protects the book, which is bound in light blue cloth with plain silver lettering on front and spine. There is no external wear. Inside, the binding is tight and all pages clean and bright.
