AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Covering the period January 1944 to March 1949, the extraordinary life of Australian artist Donald Friend continues in The Diaries of Donald Friend Volume 2. This is the second of four casebound volumes published by the National Library, revealing Friend's fine powers of observation, his irreverence and wit, his sensitivity and his marvellous eloquence. The diaries speak about art, love, friendship, travel, and much more, making absorbing reading as Friend experiences his final years of war service, both in Brisbane and as an official war artist; his return to Sydney where he lived with fellow artists in the colonial mansion Merioola; his travels to the Torres Strait Islands; and time spent in the old gold-mining town of Hill End. Including over 100 drawings from the diaries, this book is an essential publication for all lovers of art and great writing. Published under the auspices of the Morris West Trust Fund.'
