How would a destitute but charming and talented artist cope with painting portraits of Generals during one of the Napoleonic wars? Caroline Miley has written with knowledge and humour in 'Artist on Campaign'.

1956 was the year Melbourne hosted the Olympics but the ripple effect of history, the influences before and the consequences after, informed the social and political landscape as Melbourne and Australia became globally more aware. Nick Richardson explores those elements in his work, '1956 - the year Australia welcomed the world'.
