Muse: A Journey through an Art Collection

$65.00

by Janet Holmes à Court, edited by Terri-ann White


 

Muse offers an inside view of the development of a contemporary Australian art collection. Janet Holmes à Court, in conversation about art and the intense interest she shared with her late husband Robert from the 1960s, offers a rationale—along with an emotional soundtrack—for the 150 works she singles out from a collection of more than 5000 artworks. Janet discusses these selections with Terri-ann White in the racks where they are stored and in domestic spaces where they hang.

This is an illuminating book about a passion for art and expression, a deep affinity and curiosity about artists and how they make things.

The release of Muse coincides with an exhibition at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery at the University of Western Australia. The exhibition, Scratching the Surface: A selection of works from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection, runs from Saturday 22 July to Saturday 23 September 2017.
