This book recounts the glory days when Brisbane was seen as the art capital of Australia. Great artists such as renowned, award winning artist, Margaret Olley and two time Archibald winner, William Robinson, were developing and exposing their skills. Brisbane had many prestigious art galleries, art organisations and groups. These times inspired great art teachers such as Wendy Allen and Mervyn Moriarty who made such a big impact on the education of students in primary and secondary schools and tertiary colleges in the city and country areas of Queensland.
