Publishers Description: This is the second book of Dorothy Gauvin's oil paintings illustrating the verse and prose of A.B. Paterson. Over one hundred years ago, "the Banjo" first captured the hearts of Australians through his ballads about bush and city life. His work first appeared in 1885 published in The Bulletin wher he aciebed immediate success. Paterson soon built an enormous following and found a special place in the affections of his countrymen. Above all, though, it is the descriptions of ordinary Australians, drovers, drinkers. sportsmen, farmers and bushmen, that has continued to make his poetry so popular and so enduring."Banjo Paterson's Australians, which features the characters Mulga Bill, The Man from Snowy River and Father Riley, is brought to life by Dorothy Gauvin in fascinating detail and glowing colour. Drawn from Paterson's poems, these paintings portray the strength of charcater, resoucefulness and humour that have become symbols of the Australian identity.
