dc.description.abstractThis article is written as a reflection on the production of a number of narrative versions of the life and times of Ian Fairweather (1891-1974). These are primarily sourced from the ABC TV broadcast post-production script, which won the NSW Premier's Literary Award for Non-Fiction in 2010, and the database on the painter's life which was launched as a scholarly website titled The Ian Fairweather Project in 2007. Fairweather lived a long and remarkable life, filled with adventure, mystery and intrigue. In his last twenty years, living as an eccentric recluse he painted masterpieces in a handmade grass and bamboo hut on Bribie Island off the Queensland coast. His life's journey from Scotland, his significant artistic output which is represented in all state galleries in Australia in addition to overseas institutions such as the Tate Gallery in London, and his embrace of Eastern philosophy can all stir contemplations about values and attitudes to both life and to art.
