AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MY MOTHER
by Meg Stewart
Description of book
This delightful biography of Australian painter Margaret Coen is written by her
daughter, Meg Stewart.
Margaret Coen was born into an era when it wasn't easy for a woman to forge an artistic
career. Yet she survived as a commercial artist during the Depression, joining Sydney's
bohemian set in their sketch clubs and raucous studio parties. She became close
friends with Norman Lindsay and married poet Douglas Stewart, which immediately
gave her entr�e‚ into Sydney's literary circles of the time.
Meg tells her mother's story, first published twenty years ago, in Margaret's voice,
with a stream of anecdotes and personal details that build a captivating picture
of her life and of Australian social and artistic history in this era. Meg has also
written a fascinating new chapter on her mother's relationship with Norman Lindsay.
RRP: $27.95 Paperback from the Random House Publishers
