A man of myriad talents, Norman Lindsay was an Australian artist, etcher, sculptor, writer, illustrator, scale modeler, and amateur boxer. Dismissed by critics many times for his controversial subjects and nudes, he is now regarded as one of Australia's greatest artists. His works span numerous media that include pen drawings, etching, oil paintings, woodcuts, sculptures, editorials, and publishing. His affinity for the arts began to take shape at a very young age and his interests grew with him. He gained a more formal training and better experience to churn out works of incredible depth and technical prowess. His tremendous creative energy enabled him to work on multiple projects at a time. Through his work, he challenged many societal norms and invited the ire of many critics leading to many of his works being banned. Despite this, he was the highest paid Australian artist of the time. His literary works such as ‘Age of Consent’, ‘Halfway to Anywhere’, and ‘Dust or Polish’ have been adapted to the silver screen. Lindsay was not the only member of his family to dabble in the arts. His brothers, Percy, Lionel, and Ernest, sister Ruby, sons, Jack, Philip, and Raymond were all involved in the arts and inspired each other’s works.
