In 1971, a young art teacher drove the long, lonely road from Alice Springs to the Aboriginal outpost settlement at Papunya. Eighteen months later, Geoffrey Bardon left Papunya, defeated by a hostile white authority. But his legacy was the beginnings of the Western Desert Painting Movement. 'Papunya: A Place Made After the Story' is a first-hand account of the artists and the works emanating from Papunya. Bardon's exquisitely recorded notes and drawings are here reproduced showing his extensive documentation of the early stages of the painting movement. This book features over 500 paintings, drawings and photographs from Bardon's personal archive. *** Available from July***
