On Arthur Boyd

Brenda Niall
The MUP Masterworks series celebrates distinguished Australian writers and ideas. Other writers in the series include Manning Clark, A.A. Phillips, Donald Horne, Ray Parkin and Janet McCalman.

The brilliant painter Arthur Boyd (1920-99) was a member of Australia's most famous artistic dynasty. This excerpt from Brenda Niall's prize-winning study, The Boyds , reveals Arthur Boyd as a man who lived in a private world of painting, family, friends and familiar surroundings, yet developed into an iconic Australian artist, celebrated at home and abroad.
