This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
"Australian Beach Pattern" is an iconic painting, synonymous with our way of life. Charles Meere is just the little known artist who painted it. This book reveals a fresh perspective on a fascinating and remarkable artist whose reputation deserves complete re-evaluation. Accused of fascism, totalitarianism and eugenics, Meere has been dismissed by critics as unimaginative and dull. Joy Eadie is on a mission to prove them wrong about everything. This beautifully illustrated book showcases "Australian Beach Pattern", other Meere paintings and his poster art. it establishes Meere as a remarkably original, satirical and profound painter.
