Perhaps the artist with the widest international reputation in Australia’s art history, Rupert Bunny (1864-1947) is loved for his Edwardian masterpieces; loathed by some for marrying a French woman and spending 47 years in Europe; revered for the mastery of his craft and range of style and subjects, and misunderstood for his profound and challenging ‘new mythologies’. This film puts his work before the viewer for them to judge whether 60 years of devotion to his art justifies his position as among the greatest painters Australia has produced.

Includes assessments by former National Gallery Director in Canberra, James Mollison, Mary Eagle and Allan McCullough.

Reg McLean is an Australian producer and writer of a number of titles since the late 1980s. His works include A Sting in the Tale (1989), Hungry Heart (1987) andBlowing Hot and Cold (1989).
