This exquisitely produced book is a celebration of the life and art
of William Dobell, considered to be one of Australia's greatest artists
and the first to win both the Wynne Prize for landscapes and the
Archibald Prize for portraiture in the same year. However, William
Dobell was a quintessential Australian – more at home in the local pub
with his friends than on the international art stage.
He was also no stranger to controversy, famously being sued by fellow competitors after winning the Archibald Prize in 1943. Lavishly illustrated with artworks, personal photographs and newspaper clippings, William Dobell: An Artist's Life paints a compelling portrait of both the man and the artist.
