"Sunlight and Storm: The Life and Art of Penleigh Boyd" is the first book to be published on this important Australian landscape painter in almost a century. While Penleigh's life ended tragically in a car accident in 1923, in his 33 years he painted extraordinary images of Victoria's coastline, principally Port Phillip Bay, and of the hills and valleys to the east and north-east of Melbourne. He also painted Sydney Harbour and the Blue Mountains. His paintings of wattles in full bloom are unique, as is his representation of eucalypt trees.
Including over one hundred full-colour reproductions of Penleigh's art as well as works by his parents Emma Minnie and Arthur Merric Boyd, and his wife Edith Boyd. Better known as a model for E. Phillips Fox, Edith's art has never been reproduced before. The book includes a highly pictorial record of Penleigh's life and a reproduction of his extraordinary book Salvage, a record of his experiences at the Western Front during WW1. It also includes reproductions of his letters and of publications he either illustrated or that were written about him, and much more.
