Book Description:
Ten year old Jan Senbergs landed with his family in Melbourne in 1950, driven by tragic and violent events in the closing months of World War II from his native Latvia. His story is a remarkable voyage from a refugee arriving at Port Melbourne, unable to speak English, to a major Australian painter with a powerful and searching vision of his country. 'Voyage and Landfall' is the first monograph on Jan Senbergs. Luminously illustrated with more than two hundred paintings and drawings, it uncovers an underlying pattern in Senbergs' life and art between the search for experience the voyages and its rendering in the studio the landfalls. Senbergs' art has received much deserved recognition at home and overseas, and his work is held in all major galleries around Australia. His impressive artistic career has garnered numerous awards, fellowships and commissions, from the huge mural in the High Court of Australia in the 1970s to the prestigious posting as the Visiting Professor of Australian Studies at Harvard University in the late 1980s. Senbergs is the only Australian artist to receive this honour.
