George Baldessin was at the height of his creative powers at the time of his tragic death at 39 years of age in 1978. His prolific outpouring of work over two decades includes Paintings, Prints and Sculpture and is as relevant today as when it was created. This major publication on Baldessin’s art has been published to complement an exhibition of his work at TarraWarra Museum of Art. Written by Harriet Edquist it explores the relationships between figuration and abstraction, sexuality and surrealism that prevail throughout Baldessin’s oeuvre.
