PETER PURVES SMITH
Mary Eagle


2001
Published

Peter Purves Smith in the early 1940s was considered one of Australia's three most promising young artists (the others were his friend Russell Drysdale and the Sydney painter William Dobell). But Purves Smith died in 1949, too soon to make an indelible stamp on the consciousness of later generations of Australians. This book is the story of his life, and is told as a narrative. Throughout, Peter Purves Smith speaks for himself in drawings, paintings, verse and letters
