John Olsen. Lake Eyre, The Desert Sea

1976. Lithograph, cover image for portfolio, titled and dated in image, 63 x 45.8cm. Linen-backed.

Text continues “This portfolio is number [...] of 60. Published by Port Jackson Press, Sydney, Australia.”

John Olsen (Aust., b.1928) had “first dabbled in lithography in 1963 when he was commissioned by the Art Gallery Society of Victoria…The portfolio was the culmination of various trips to Lake Eyre, and the celebration of life as experienced by Olsen when the lake flooded in 1975...In riotous profusion, pelicans, kangaroos, fish and other wildlife appear to jump from the paper.” Ref: NGA.
