Horace Trenerry (1899-1958) an artist of unique vision and quality remained known only by a small group of admirers, most of them in Adelaide. Disregarded in books on Australian art, two of Trenerrys paintings were nevertheless included in an important exhibition of Australian painting shown at the Tate Gallery, London in 1963 where they were singled out for special praise. In 1970, Lou Klepac, when Curator of paintings at the Art Gallery of South Australia, published a book on this remarkable painter, whose achievement seemed impossible to extend beyond the south Australian border. Today, Trenerry is being discovered by discerning collectors of Australian art, especially in Sydney, where Barry Pearce, Head Curator of Australian Art, has acquired several of Trenerrys finest works for the collection. The present book which shows a wide range of Trenerrys work all in colour, will allow people to discover a painter who deserves to be better known.
