He devotes the first part of the work to interweaving accounts of poetry, criticism & painting and the Dobell 1943 Archibald Prize; next he considers how the new physics and landscape contibuted to Australian Modernism; his final section is devoted to Margaret Preston who, he suggests, gave European Modernism to Australia.
