Max Meldrum & Associates: Their Art, Lives & Influences

We went to State Library this afternoon. 
This place has been very alien to me until very recently, but thanks to Kate's recommendations, I started to go and read there with her. 
What a lovely place, it is. I just love this atmosphere in the reading room. 

Meldrum is a founding father of Australian tonalist painters. I'm very excited to be a very small student of this remarkable tradition of oil painting. 
First introduced by my painting teacher and mentor, Gregory Smith, I've been searching for Meldrum's life and works. 

Unfortunately there's not much materials. 

This book is really a rare find. It's very well researched, and his works printed in colours are all great.
