Detailing the lives and times of Australian painter and theater artist Loudon Sainthill and his partner, the entrepreneur and gallery director Harry Tatlock Miller, this sumptuously illustrated biography contains much of Sainthill's work along with never-before-published archival photographs. Infused with fantasy, color, and surrealism, Sainthill's art embraced painting, murals, book illustration, textile design, and fashion. He is best known, however, for his costumes, design, and artwork for theater and ballet. This meticulously researched book paints a compelling picture of an internationally celebrated artist, shedding light at the same time on the realities of the Australian and British art and theater worlds in the mid 20th-century and the lives of gay men at the time.
