Judy Cassab has always been shadowed by her past. Born in Vienna in 1920 to Hungarian Jewish parents, she lived through the horrors of the Second World War. Her husband taken to a labour camp and her family killed in Auschwitz, she managed to survive in hiding. Cassab migrated to Australia at a time when few women artists were given serious attention. Today, twice the winner of the Archibald Prize, Cassab is one of Australia's foremost painters.

She is a portratist of singular skill who counts many famous men and women among her subjects. She has been for many years a well-known and generously supportive member of the arts community in Sydney. She is respected as an artist; she's loved as a woman. However, the Judy Cassab revealed in the pages of these journals is a far more complex, more various personage than one might expect. The diaries are a chronicle of 50 years from 1944 to 1994." -- from Morris West's foreword. This is the first Australian edition. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
