Summary
Bearing 'the conspicuous mark of talent' from an early age, the fiercely independent and opinionated Margaret Preston is one of Australia's most innovative early modernists. From the 1920s Preston moved rapidly to the forefront of Australian progressive art, producing a body of work that has remained crucially important to the traditions of Australian art. Her search for the essential truths of the Australian conditions as the basis for an authentic, modern, national art consumed her working life
