Norman Lindsay "Frolic" Facsimile Etching by Norman Lindsay (1879-1969), artist, cartoonist, and writer. Norman came from a family that produced five artists, he left home at sixteen to live with his brother in Melbourne. In 1901 he moved to his permanent home in the Blue Mountains, working for the Bulletin in an association that lasted almost to his death. His first novel was published in 1913, and by the 1920s he was both proficient and prolific in pen and ink drawing, etching, woodcuts, watercolours and sculpture. Lindsay rejected Christianity, and his art depicts Bohemianism and Arcadian pantheism madly admixed in a fantasy world. As early as 1904 his work was labelled blasphemous and deemed obscene.  This Norman Lindsay "Frolic" Facsimile renders  frank renditions of female nudity while many of his other etchings  depicting cavorting bacchanalia both scandalized and fascinated the conservative milieu and Australian bourgeoisie of his time. In 1930 his novel ‘Redheap’ was banned and the following year the police proceeded against an issue of Art and Australia that showcased his drawings. His enduring art, work and philosophical legacy remain popular with the art world, collectors and the general public alike. Rose Lindsay modelled for the back of the main figure. Seventeen original etchings are pure drypoint and included in this list are Light Lyrics, The Eighties, Delight, Decoy, Juno, The Pool (1924) and Summer. The original drypoint was etched in 1926 in an edition of 38.
