    Mssrs McAuliffe and McCaughey do lunch

    Late last year Patrick McCaughey was in Australia to promote his book "Strange Country: Why Australian Painting Matters", published by MUP.

    Art Guide Australia asked me to photograph these two wise men of Australian art having lunch and discussing "Why Australian Art Matters". I dressed well and skipped breakfast hoping for at least a little dessert (the most important part of any meal). No food was forthcoming!

    I did however get these pictures and Patrick's autograph in my copy of his fine tome.

    To read Chris' words and see the matter resolved go to Art Guide Australia.
