Creswick, Victoria, Australia
Australian illustrator and novelist Norman Lindsay was born in Creswick, Victoria, in 1879. His father was a physician, but Norman and his brothers had a streak of artistic and literary talent in them (which Norman passed on to his son, the writer Jack Lindsay). At 16 years of age Norman got a job as an illustrator on a Melbourne newspaper, and in 1901 he became the chief cartoonist on the "Sydney Bulletin". Lindsay has worked in virtually all mediums of art--watercolors, lithographs, pen-and-ink drawings, etchings, engravings, even sculpturing in cement. Read more...
