MR JW Lewin, Painter & Naturalist Richard Neville Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Author, illustrator, printmaker, and natural historian John William Lewin was the first professional artist to arrive in Australia as a free man. Featuring more than 150 exquisite artworks, this record takes a fascinating look at Lewin’s life and work, his place in colonial Australian society, and the enthusiasm for natural history that swept the world in the 1800s. Visually stunning, this biography is a testament to Lewin’s artistic legacy, which includes the first ever illustrated book published in Australia—Birds of New South Wales in 1813.
