NORMAN LINDSAY
Crete - Major Study of Rita for the Oil Painting
1940
Pencil on paper
60.0 x 37.0 cm
Unsigned

Inspired by reading a book on Crete, Norman worked out a composition for an oil painting and decided to have Rita pose for the central figure. She stayed at Springwood as a house guest while it was painted. Amber Kraljevich is the blonde girl next to the bull and Pearl Schweig, the brunette next to her. Harry Lee, Rita's twelve year old brother, is the young boy next to the central figure of Rita. Jane Lindsay posed for the back view figure and Norman used his own face in a mirror for the dark haired male. Rita posed for a number of other women in Crete as well as the central figure.

Crete is referenced and reproduced in Norman Lindsay: Oil Paintings 1889-1969 (Odana Editions, 2005, p.138). The original oil painting is in the University of Melbourne Art Collection.
