It is an account of her extensive travels with her husband, the painter Sidney Nolan, to the remote outback of Australia, and to Africa, China and Papua New Guinea. Cynthia Nolan describes the landscapes, experiences and people that were the inspiration for some of Sidneys finest paintings. She records her own and Sidneys responses to people and landscape with intelligence, wit and good humour. She goes straight to the essentials of what she is describing, whether it be the luminous Australian desert, game reserves in Africa, the highlands in Papua New Guinea or the crowded streets of Shanghai, ablaze with the bustle and paradoxes of revolutionary China. Outback and Beyond is an invaluable insight into the imaginative world of one of Australias greatest artists, as well as being a fascinating piece of travel writing in its own right.
