Scenes of a city
Local artist Robert Brownhall has just released a quite magnificent hardcover book, Australian Stories, which encompasses 20 years of his paintings – and it’s really rather special. He’s got a particular knack for painting Brisbane, such as this depiction of our annual show.
I especially love his sweeping cityscapes and street scenes that capture some of the quirks of our city – the book’s cover, which shows a house painter examining his handiwork while a butcher bird looks on from the front fence, is a great example of this. Put it on the wish list!
