Donald Friend: Study
My friend and colleague Nick Elm recently allowed me to take some photographs from items in his collection and one of the things that really caught my eye was this large pen and ink study by the Australian artist Donald Friend (1915-1989). Friend was, as well as an artist, also a writer and his four volume diaries have been published by The National Library of Australia: he has been called Australia's most important Twentieth Century diarist. It's not the first time we've had a picture by Friend on this blog, but I think this is by far the best.
