An Uncompromising Moralist, the Art, Life and Times of Robert Boynes

Author(s): Michael Denholm

Fine Art

Praised, late in the 1980's, by the eminent Australian art historian Bernard Smith, for his art 'being among the most authentic and impressive being painted by an Australian today'' directing our 'imagination and its foreboding, powerfully and without equivocation to the central, and now pressing, paradox of modernity, is humanity destined to foul its own nest fatally?'' Robert Boynes is undoubtedly one of Australia's major artists.This book tells the story of his art and life, including his involvement in the Progressive Art Movement in Adelaide during the tempestuous Vietnam Years, the Presidency of Richard Nixon in the United States of America, and Watergate, linking the story of his art to the major issues of the times he has lived in, including the environmental crisis facing humanity in the twenty first century and the truly awful problem of homelessness.
