Penelope and Tansy Curtin’s sumptuous new book is an ode to both art and botany, tracing the relationship through the history of Australian art, one flower at a time. This Bendigo-based mother and daughter duo show the importance of floral fashions and forms, with beautiful depictions of everything from daisies to waratahs. Works by some of Australia’s most important and loved artists are featured, including Margaret Preston, Grace Cossington Smith, John Brack and Margaret Olley.
To celebrate the launch of this spectacular, meticulously researched book, Penelope and Tansy are joined by influential art critic Robert Nelson.
This is a Bendigo Writers Festival Bookmark event.
