Ivor Hele was a prolific artist of extraordinary discipline and power. His front-line responses to war, the portraits that won him an astonishing five Archibald prizes in a single decade, his exuberant nudes and his magnificent landscapes combine to make up a prodigious body of work. Jane Hylton's book focuses on Hele's non-war art, offering a wider view of the man, his exceptional ability and his contribution to Australian art than has been previously available. This book has some of his finest art work, allowing readers to see the genius behind this great artist and activist.
