Out and about - Norman Lindsay Gallery and cafe

Norman Lindsay is Australia's (arguably) best-known artist.
He was certainly prolific, and is in it's day his work was very controversial.
His love of the female form was the source of much of his inspiration and he created a wealth of painting, drawings, sculptures and etchings with very bohemian and decadent subjects.
He also wrote - some of his works were banned, but his best know story "The Magic Pudding" is well-known and loved.
Thankfully his home near me in the Blue Mountains has been preserved....and was thankfully saved during the recent bushfires.
There is also a delightful many reasons to visit.

So beautiful! I would love to visit one day too. It was featured in a recent Country Style magazine too. How wonderful that such gems are open to the public. :)

Oh you should come Christina! ....but such a long way.
The property is owned by the National Trust so hopefully it will be safe for all time.
I didn't see the Country Style magazine - I'll have to look out for it.
