‘A. M. E. Bale - Her art and life’ by Peter Perry

My friend Paul kindly gave me this book when we painted together in Kyneton last Sunday. 

She was one of Max Meldrum’s students, a tonal realism painter who was heavily involved in artistic, cultural and political movements in Melbourne and Castlemain. Although she’s not a household name, her legacy has been passed on as A. M. E. Bale Travelling Scholarship, one of the most prestigious art prizes in Australia. 

This book is beautifully organised with brief history of her life and brilliant colour reproductions.
