Norman Lindsay is among Australia’s most colourful historical figures. Part of the Lindsay artistic dynasty, a family that produced five distinguished artists, his achievements were varied. From writing the childhood classic The Magic Pudding through to creating some of the era’s most salacious (and censored) imagery, Lindsay’s output was as vivacious as it was contrarian.

In this superb original pencil on paper, Lindsay’s talent as a draughtsman beams. He captures a beautiful woman called ‘Gloria’. This subject reappears throughout Lindsay’s oeuvre, suggesting she was either a favourite model or imagined muse, perhaps inspired by the Gloria sirens. Indeed, Lindsay often took from Antiquity, inserting figures from Greek mythology in the Australian landscape. For him, the sensuality and vitality of these stories offered advice for life.

Lindsay practiced his art in Australia but imagined his characters in another time and place. Sometimes fantastical and always beguiling, his art continues to intrigue, standing as some Australia’s most collectible. To collect Lindsay is not just to possess a work of art, but to explore a fascinating moment in Australian art history. He is represented in all major public collections and is the subject of continuing research, exhibition and conversation.

'Gloria' is a particularly good example of Lindsay's drawing abilities and was likely conceived over some time. For collectors of important works on paper, drawings and Lindsay, let it enchant you.
