AUSTRALIAN AUTHOR Sunlight and Storm The Life and Art of Penleigh Boyd is the first book to be published on this important Australian landscape painter in almost a century. While Penleigh’s life ended tragically in a car accident in 1923, in his 33 years he painted extraordinary images of Victoria’s coastline, principally Port Phillip Bay, and of the hills and valleys to the east and north-east of Melbourne. He also painted Sydney Harbour and the Blue Mountains. His paintings of wattles in full bloom are unique, as is his representation of eucalypt trees. Sunlight and Storm The Life and Art of Penleigh Boyd includes over one hundred full-colour reproductions of Penleigh’s art as well as works by his parents Emma Minnie and Arthur Merric Boyd, and his wife Edith Boyd. Better known as a model for E. Phillips Fox, Edith’s art has never been reproduced before. The book includes a highly pictorial record of Penleigh’s life and a reproduction of his extraordinary book Salvage, a record of his experiences at the Western Front during WW1. It also includes reproductions of his letters and of publications he either illustrated or that were written about him, and much more. Sunlight and Storm The Life and Art of Penleigh Boyd is Colin Smith’s third book about the Boyd family. Complimenting Merric Boyd and Murrumbeena and Lucy Boyd Beck Life and Art, his new book provides readers with new insights into the Boyd family and their remarkable artistic achievements. AUTHOR: For over 30 years Colin Smith has researched and written about the Boyd family, including Penleigh’s brother in Merric Boyd and Murrumbeena and his niece in Lucy Boyd Beck: Life and Art. Sunlight and Storm: The Life and Art of Penleigh Boyd is his third book.
