Nearly every history of Australian modern art, and monographs dedicated to artists of the period, will refer to the writings of Arnold Shore. Deakin University academic, Rob Haysom, explores the background of the artist, the difficulties of his time, and the development of modernist ideas as new of European trends gradually infiltrated the local scene. Shores flower studies and paintings of the Australian bush particularly around Mt. Macedon are rich in texture and exuberant in the application of paint to canvas.
