Published to coincide with the artist’s 75th birthday and a major exhibition. The exhibition and book were launched by Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce.

William Robinson: The Transfigured Landscape presents key works from Robinson’s practice, including an unparalleled selection of the his critically acclaimed Creation series. Most images are produced as full-page illustrations, and to allow works to be appreciated fully, many were specially re-photogaphed for this book, and some larger works are reproduced across one of the four gatefolds that fold out to reveal larger works.

Reproduced are both of Robinson’s Archibald Prize winning portraits, and many of his domestic interiors and farmyard scenes, but the greatest emphasis is on presenting and discussing his extraordinary landscapes.

The images are integrated with the texts, and these have been written by curators and writers who have known the artist for an extended period. Dr Deborah Hart’s lead essay is a revised and greatly expanded version of her 2001 essay in Queensland Art Gallery’s Darkness & Light: The Art of William Robinson.

David Malouf’s essay has been adapted from its first appearance as the introduction to the exhibition catalogue William Robinson: Paintings and Pastels, published by Philip Bacon Galleries, Brisbane (2006).

In their new essay, Desmond MacAulay and Bettina MacAulay explore the inter-relationships of painting and music in William Robinson’s art.

The essays by Dr Michael Brand and Hannah Fink are adapted from their first publication in Darkness & Light.
