Over a period of seventy years Australian artist Norman Alfred Williams Lindsay (1879–1969) painted rare and wonderful watercolours. One hundred and thirty-five featured watercolours are reproduced in this volume together with over twenty supplementary watercolours and over one hundred and twenty additional works in a variety of media.

Sixteen public galleries across every state and territory in Australia are represented as well as a selection of watercolours from private collection.

These watercolours are a microcosm of his inspiration. Norman was an aesthete who rarely found his material in the reality of the present but in a spiritual return to times past. Apart from the nudes and portraits he painted from life, he garnered the content of his art from many sources. These include his own imaginings; the writers, poets and composers he most admired; his keen sense of humour; piracy and the Spanish Main; Greek and Roman mythology; the Bible; the hypocrisy of the times in which he lived and his abhorrence of war. All are represented here.

The importance of this major addition to Lindsay literature for all lovers of Lindsay’s art will be immediately apparent.
