"Boyhood in a Victorian country town with goats and Chinese fossickers; bohemian art student days in Melbourne; to Spain to illustrate Carmen; London with Phil May and the ebullient Randolph Bedford; back in Sydney with Henry Lawson, "Banjo" Paterson, and J. F. Archibald; off to Spain again to paint with A. J. Munnings and to do the etchings and pen drawings that made his famous exhibition at Colnaghi's - this is the range of Lionel Lindsay's autobiography, Comedy of Life."
