LARRIKINS IN LONDON: AN AUSTRALIAN PRESENCE IN 1960s LONDON.

Sydney: The University of NSW, College of Fine Arts/Ivan Dougherty Gallery, 2003. SIGNED by Martin Sharp on the front cover (which reproduces his 'Plant a Flower Child' poster), and by Richard Neville on the title page. The catalogue to the exhibition curated by Nick Waterlow, with an introductory essay by him. 14x16cm. Wrps., 120pp.


Profusely illustrated throughout in colour and b/w, featuring the larrikinism of many Australian artists in '60s London, including album covers, paintings and posters by Martin Sharp, Brett Whiteley's Christie murder series, Sidney Nolan's Ned Kelly series, photographs by Lewis Morley (including his Christine Keeler portraits), images by and of Barry Humphries, and Bob Whitaker’s images of the Aloszko sisters (Oz #5, 'Plant a Flower Child'). Includes reminiscences from many of the Australians who formed part of the cultural exodus to London in the '60s - Richard Neville, Louise Ferrier, Marsha Rowe, Jim Anderson, Martin Sharp, Albie Thoms (all of whom contributed to Oz), and many others (though not Clive James, who declined to participate and considered the exhibition "a thoroughly bad idea"). Also features several poms who played key roles in the social and cultural mix of the era, among them Eric Clapton, Felix Dennis, David Hockney, Caroline Coon, John Mortimer, and John Lennon.
