“Bruce Swann, apart from four years in the Royal Australian Navy, has spent much of his life in the country and outback areas. As a studstock auctioneer he travelled far and often, developing at the same time a deep appreciation of the real Australia – the lingering signs of the spirit of the pioneers.
His first book and his first exhibition were both instant successes leading to reprints and repeats respectively.
Requests for copies and originals have come from the United States, Europe, New Zealand, Japan and other overseas countries showing the image of real Australia has wide appeal.
“Swann 71” is a collection of the artist’s latest works.”
