On the tranquil shores of Lake Macquarie, William Dobell lives and works. He and Dame Mary Gilmore discuss his work and its development - rough sketches from real life later translated to danvas; commissioned portraits; and landscapes. Studies of some of his better known works are included. Contains some b&w footage.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
