John Olsen - Australia's Wandering Minstral
Channel 9 Sunday Program
This wonderful documentary produced by Catherine Hunter and presented by Max Cullen investigates John's enduring passion for the Australian landscape. John revisits Lake Eyre after many years with artist and friend Tim Storrier and discusses his deep love for the desert.
Cullen examines other environments that have shaped John's artmaking, including the years spent in Spain in the 1960s; Clarendon, SA and Sydney Harbour, Kings Cross and Hill End, NSW. Fascinating insights are provided by Edmund Capon and Barry Pearce, Art Gallery of NSW.
