CHARLES BLACKMAN    Australia    1926 -   Women and Love

Blackman grew up in a feminine atmosphere with his mother and three sisters whose dreams, emotions and images become part of his conscience. Here is Blackman at ease painting feminine subjects, and he is renowned for his images of Zelda Fitzgerald, the Schoolgirls series and his extensive Alice in Wonderland series. Joy Hester, said "The hand and the eye of the painter is what love is to a poet" thus Blackman's art has the infinite power and universal appeal. "When I was young I thought there was a dream in the in between of finding and knowing, but the dream was eternity of torment of unknowing" he says.
