Richard Travers, the author of Diggers in France, now turns his attention to the Australians who painted the Great War. Following artists such as Tom Roberts, Grace Cossington Smith, Hilda Rix Nicholas, etc, he details the story of their response to the crisis. Their work, in all its richness and variety, is a sweeping painterly chronicle of the war, and a vital part of Australia’s heritage.
