Books
"Australian Beach Pattern" is an iconic painting, synonymous with our way of life. Charles Meere is the little-known artist who painted it. This book reveals a fresh perspective on a remarkable artist whose reputation deserves complete re-evaluation. Accused of fascism, totalitarianism and eugenics, Meere has been dismissed by critics as unimaginative and dull. Joy Eadie is on a mission to prove them wrong about everything. This beautifully illustrated book showcases Meere's paintings and his poster art.
