Summary
John Olsen's striking mural for the Sydney Opera House was his response to the poem, 'Five Bells', by Kenneth Slessor. Here, Olsen talks about the inspiration for the mural and its creation. The book includes a previously unseen self-portrait and paintings that reveal the creative path he took, ending with a moving self-penned poem, 'Farewell to Five Bells'. The centrepiece is Olsen's 'Opera House Journal', in which the artist combines images, sketches and notes, and ponders his artistic journey that resulted in the magnificent mural that graces the Opera House today
