The paintings of Jeffrey Smart, one of Australia's most celebrated expatriate painters, have entranced and intrigued the public for over half a century. Taking subject matter from all that would appear bleak about the modern world - highways, inhospitable cities, impersonal contemporary architecture - Smart has created a unique kind of beauty. Produced to accompany the 1999 Retrospective, it describes the artists working process with many illustrations of paintings complemented by studies and sketches. This catalogue contains essays by Edmund Capon and Barry Pearce with an infusion of Jeffrey Smart's compelling letters and quotes. This publication is destined to have a long life beyond the exhibition as an enduring art book.
