IAN FAIR WEATHER

VOGUE Living Australia - - Art & Design -

Prob­a­bly the purest artist Australia ever pro­duced, even if he was born in Eng­land. His beauty dwells in his con­tra­dic­tions: he re­jected Cu­bism but painted tonally; he de­nied ab­strac­tion but pushed our paint­ing (fi­nally) out of land­scape and into mod­ernism. Anak Bayan (1957, right).
