Stravinsky's Lunch

ISBN: 0330362593
Publisher: Picador 1999
8vo softcover. 364pp Very good, corners slightly bumped. Over 80 in-text illustrations and 42 colour plates. Stella Bowen and Grace Cossington Smith were born a year apart, in the antipodean autumns of 1893 and 1892 respectively. Beyond this fact their lives were very different. One was a good cook; the other was not. One left Australia on the eve of the First World War and lived the rest of her life in Europe; the other lived for decades in the same house on the outskirts of Sydney. For one Paris and famous names; for the other the quiet life of a provincial suburb. One went off to find life and art; the art of the other grew out of the life she lived. The bohemian and the spinster. They are like mirror images of each other.
