Venus in Tullamarine: Art, Sex, Politics and Norman Lindsay

Norman Lindsay was a prolific, popular and controversial Australian artist. He is best known for his children's book, The Magic Pudding, and his skilled prints, which mostly draw on Greek and Roman mythology and 19th century literature and philosophy. This collection of essays examines Lindsay's legacy and current position in Australian art and cultural history. The contributors are a cross-generational selection of Australia’s finest art and literary historians, artists and critics. The Australian cultural consciousness is indelibly marked by Lindsay's output, his prominence in the Sydney bohemian intellectual scene and by The Magic Pudding, which marks the imagination of generation after generation of children growing up in Australia. This consciousness is shaped too by the paradoxical conjunctions of Lindsay's life: artistic bohemianism and fascist tendencies, avant-gardism and a fervour for the rule of law, libertinism and conservatism, worship and denigration.
