Published in 2004

This beautifully produced book gives us for the first time the
opportunity to appreciate the full extent of the artist's achievement
over four decades and enter more deeply the motivation and ideas behind
his work and the style that remains a major force of contemporary
Australian painting.

For the first time we can appreciate the
full extent of Johnson's achievement over the past four decades. Barry
Pearce's text provides a fascinating insight into the determination of
this independent and highly intellectual artist. The book follows his
development from early works painted in London, his activities in New
York and eventual return to Australia, where his work remains a major
force in contemporary Australian painting.
