AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Judith and Clifton Pugh met in September 1970. He was already a major portrait and landscape painter; she was twenty years younger than him and had just joined the Australian Labor Party. Their decade together was one where the boundaries between political, social and art milieus were blurred - a heady mix of painting, policy and pleasure that reflected the changing face of Australian society. With a unique female perspective on the times, this is as much about the emergence of feminism as it is a behind-the-scenes look at the Whitlam years. But there was a darker side to this successful partnership - for the first time, Judith reveals the complexity of a relationship haunted by wartime experiences'--Publisher.
