The Lives of the Australian Artists who Painted the Great War, 1914-18 

Richard Travers, the author of Diggers in France: Australian Soldiers on the Western Front, now turns his attention to the Australians who painted the Great War. In To Paint a War he follows artists such as Tom Roberts, Grace Cossington Smith, Hilda Rix Nicholas, Arthur Streeton and George Coates – detailing how they left Australia in search of inspiration and fame in London and Paris and lived enviable lives suddenly interrupted by the outbreak of war. 

To Paint A War is the story of their response to the crisis. Their work, in all its richness and variety, is a sweeping painterly chronicle of the war, and a vital part of Australia’s heritage.
