BY Wakefield Press | 05-Jul-2016

Franz Kempf: Aspects of a Journey 1947–2016
In the year of the renowned artist’s 90th birthday, 'Franz Kempf: Aspects of a journey 1947–2016' gathers together many of Kempf’s finest works from the 1940s to today, including treasures from his private collection. John Neylon’s illuminating essay considers the qualities that give Kempf’s oeuvre a distinctive identity within Australian art, ‘characterised by this seeming contradiction of constancy and flux’.

Released to coincide with the exhibition 'Franz Kemp: Aspects of a journey' to be held from 25 June to 14 August 2016 at the State Library of South Australia, this book includes never-before-seen photographs of the author throughout his career, alongside reproductions of some of his best known work.
