Elaine Haxton: A colourful artist and life

Author(s): Lorraine Penny McLoughlin


This book celebrates the extraordinary life of artist Elaine
Haxton and illustrates with beautiful reproductions the
range and quality of her work, asserting her rightful place
as a significant twentieth century Australian artist.
From the time Haxton entered East Sydney Technical
College aged 14, art became her passion and her livelihood,
and she was always searching and learning. Although based
in Sydney, at various times she studied in London, New York,
Paris and Kyoto, and experiences in many countries
continually expanded her approaches to art.
Through hard work, flair and endless energy, she
produced fine work in many spheres, always seriously reviewed and respectfully acclaimed. At the same time, she
lived in a social whirl, a darling of the press, but loved and
rewarded in the top echelons of the Australian art world.
