John Olsen
An Artist’s Life

An exhilarating book, both trenchant and tender, it unflinchingly reveals the man in full.

About the Book:
This landmark biography by Darleen Bungey, the author of the celebrated biography of Arthur Boyd, graphically depicts the forces that drove John Olsen to become ‘one of Australia’s greatest living artists’.

Darleen Bungey strips away the veneer of showmanship and fame to show the substance of a painter driven by his art above all, and a need to depict his country’s landscape as Australians had never seen it before. Drawing on extensive interviews with both Olsen and those who have known him best, she explores his passionate private life, his friendships and rivalries with other artists, and his love–hate relationship with the Australian art scene

About the Author:
Darleen Bungey has been an advertising copywriter, associate editor and writer for British magazines, freelance journalist, and book reviewer. In 1999 she began researching her seminal biography of Arthur Boyd, which was published to critical acclaim in 2007 and for which she was awarded a PhD. It won the Dobbie Literary Award and the Australian Book Industry Award for Biography of the Year.
