Gerald Lewers: Sculptor | Author: Peter Pinson

While exhibiting in London in 1934 as a young Australian sculptor Gerald Lewers was described as a pioneer, an artist "destined to become a powerful influence in the cause of modernism in Australia."

Tracing the challenges and opportunities experienced by Lewers, Pinson brings alive the period in which he worked and his recognition as a sculptor dedicated to the use of natural materials. The qualities of drama and movement that characterised small and large works are illustrated in more than 40 black and white and coloured images.

In addition, reference is made to the Lewers legacy – the Penrith Regional Gallery and Lewers Bequest where Gerald and his wife, abstract expressionist painter Margo, created a unique modernist domestic environment including buildings, garden and art collection.
