This high-quality, limited edition exquisitely produced and leather bound book, signed by the author, is a celebration of the life and art of William Dobell, considered to be one of Australia's greatest artists. Dobell was the first artist to win both the Wynne Prize for landscapes and the Archibald Prize for portraiture in the same year. But William Dobell was also a quintessential Aussie bloke - more at home in the local pub with his mates than on the international stage. He also seemed to find controversy wherever he went, 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.
