Most widely held works by Lou Klepac
Sidney Nolan by Sidney Nolan( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The speed at which Sidney Nolan worked, and the expansiveness of his production, has always presented something of a dilemma for the retrospective defining of his genius. John Olsen once described Nolan as having a wild eye, by which he was able to glimpse a motif with the instantaneousness of a lens shutter, spawning a bewildering plethora of images, from ephemeral sketches to large-scale compositions, many of which have become indelible icons of 20th century Australian art. This retrospective, consisting of approximately 116 paintings, will be presented in chronological order, underlining the evolution of Nolans vision from its genesis in St Kilda during the late 1930s to the United Kingdom half a century later

The life and work of Russell Drysdale by Lou Klepac( Book )

7 editions published between 1983 and 2000 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Russell Drysdale is one of the giants of Australian painting. Although his paintings so uniquely characterize their country of orgin, they can also be seen as universally valid images of man and landscape. Original in conception and sophisticated in execution, his work marks the attainment of a particular level of maturity in Australian art. By the time of his death in 1981, at the age of 69, he had become one of the most popular and best-loved arts the country has produced. The first modern Australian artist to exhibit in London, Drysdale met with immediate success there and was at once recognized as the leading visual interpreter of Australian life and landscape."--Jacket

Brett Whiteley drawings by Lou Klepac( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of drawing is to make freshness permanent. Out of billions of seconds of futility, occasionally, sparks of the life force are immutably held forever. Brett Whiteley wrote these lines in his 1985 notebook about the activity at the very heart of his life as an artist, drawing. For three decades Whiteley bewitched his audience with his mercurial character and unconventional behaviour, producing original and challenging works such as The American Dream and Alchemy. He was an indefatigable draughtsman, putting great energy into his drawings, which stand alone as a vital part of his oeuvre. In his finest drawings he concentrated all his talents to produce incandescent moments of vision. Nowhere is he more pure than in his remarkable drawings. Brett Whiteley Drawings includes 180 of Whiteley's most important drawings, from early views made as a student to the last series of works made in Paris in 1989, before his untimely and tragic death. Also illustrated are pages from Whiteley's notebooks, in which he drew and wrote his reflections on art, painting and drawing
