Charis Schwarz, an Australian artist and former nurse, “met the dashing, Swiss-born artist, George, on a beach in Spain.” They travelled extensively on a motorcycle throughout Europe, Asia, North Africa and Australia, and have been described as “the last bohemians, [and] the essence of 1960s European cool.” Schwarz and her partner made “erotic films together, collecting and creating extraordinary objects from antique bones to statues of baby Jesus.” Hogarth Galleries held an exhibition of Schwarz’s work in 1975. The couple’s 1965 BMW R50 motorcycle is held at the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences in Sydney. Ref: ABC Radio National, 18.11.2012; MAAS; artist’s website.
