  • Dedication: For David and Lyly.
  • Epigraph:
    "I cannot help feeling that my heart lies with these men who see intense and almost religious beauty in simple Nature that surrounds us - in the beauty of the skies and the mystery of the earth." (Hans Heysen to Lionel Lindsay 24 September 1922)

    "Why don't they draw, draw, and draw? Their one idea is to cultivate the emotional sense, under the plea that they are expressing their personality. But I strongly advocate what Lambert says: first look upon Art as a trade and try to make yourself a perfect craftsman. I am afraid most of us realise this all too late." (Hans Heysen to Lionel Lindsay 25 July 1922)
