|Art and Life|
Inside the fascinating world of the Heide modern art movement, written by a man who was an integral part. The memoir of a man bearing witness to the remarkable world of Heide.
'I am not a man of unusual public or private achievement. I have, however, lived through interesting times and am one of the last remaining witnesses to the extraordinary lives of John and Sunday Reed.'
For twenty-seven years, Philip Jones and his partner Barrie Reid, were John and Sunday Reed's closest, most trusted friends and Heide was the place they called home. This is Philip's story - both loving and critical - of what really went on at this renowned artistic centre (now the Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne) where all that was new in literature, art and modes of living was embraced with gusto.
With a cast including Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker, Arthur Boyd, Joy Hester and Gray Smith, Max Harris, Barry Humphries and Sweeney Reed, Art and Life is a deeply personal portrait of an inspired group of people who succeeded in integrating a unique Australian sensibility with the world at large.(A&U)
