Description - The Forgotten Notebook by Betty Churcher

"In the 1990s Betty Churcher drew her way around the galleries of the world as she arranged artwork loans for blockbuster exhibitions at the National Gallery of Australia. In 2014 she discovered a sketchbook she had forgotten and decided to create a final companion volume to her bestselling Notebooks series. She wrote the manuscript in six months, but died shortly after completing it.
A prize-winning artist in her own right, Betty's sketches were inspired by works of some of the biggest names in art- Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rubens and Vermeer through to Picasso, Cezanne, Monet and Duchamp. Betty's sketches and notes bring their artworks to life as she explores the stories of how they were created and reveals each artist s influences.
As in the bestselling Notebooks and Australian Notebooks, The Forgotten Notebook showcases Betty Churcher's greatest talents- championing art and sharing the excitement of discovering meaning in the great artworks of the world."
