Summary
"Bill's art instruction owed much to European traditions and when the chance came to study in England, in 1947-8, and later to take Sabbatical leave from his teaching position at the University of Canterbury's School of fine Arts in 1973-4, he lost no time in making the most of those opportunities. His sabbatical - 300 days of freedom - was spent by choice in Italy. It proved to be one of the most rewarding experiences of his life. As a lecturer, one of Bill's favourite periods was the Renaissance, both Early and Late. His abiding wish was to visit Rome, Florence, Arezzo, Ravenna, Assisi, Urbino and in particular, that city of watery haze and light, Venice. And so he did. Bill's itinerary in Italy was carefully prepared. Spurning lens-and-shutter technology, he took notebooks, diaries and painting equipment. Already committed to the Renaissance ideas of aesthetic harmony and correct proportion, his watercolours exemplify an Italian sensibility. And his diaries, full of brief, witty and informative comments, describe through daily activities, his enduring enthusiasm for all things Italian. While in Italy, Bill painted a great number of watercolour sketches on paper, including some frottage work done in museums, particularly in Rome and the Vatican. Apart from a few works given as gifts to friends, Bill donated the rest (approximately 110) to the Christchurch Art Gallery for their collection. His personal papers, diaries, and letters are in the gallery's archives. This book, An Italian Sojourn is generously illustrated with over 80 reproductions selected from those works, and through its publication, enable the public to see again and again his skill - and enjoy further his altruistic gift." -- Publisher's description
