This beautifully produced book gives us for the first time the opportunity to appreciate the full extent of the artist's achievement over four decades and enter more deeply the motivation and ideas behind his work and the style that remains a major force of contemporary Australian painting.

For the first time we can appreciate the full extent of Johnson's achievement over the past four decades.
