Summary
  • De Australische kunstenaar Harold Leslie Thornton (1915-2004) woont en werkt een belangrijk deel van zijn leven in Amsterdam. Hij begint zijn carrière in Sydney als signwriter, schilder van gevels en winkelramen. Sporen daarvan zijn in Nederland nog te zien in met name de Nieuwmarktbuurt. Coffeeshop the Bulldog is het bekendste en nog steeds bestaande voorbeeld. Geleidelijk ontwikkelt Thornton zijn enorme talent als portretschilder en er komen steeds meer muurschilderingen. Maar hij beperkt zich niet tot schilderen. Hij is ook performer, cartoonist en schrijver van gedichten en een &​#x96; gefragmenteerde &​#x96; autobiografie. Daarnaast is hij in ieder opzicht artiest, in de manier waarop hij zich kleedt, zich door de wereld beweegt en vriendschappen en relaties onderhoudt. Sommigen noemen hem een hippie of een psychedelische kunstenaar, maar hij laat zich niet in een hokje plaatsen of op een stijl vastleggen. &​#x91;&​#x85; What do I paint: I have many styles, and change to suit the subject.&​#x92; Dit boek is niet alleen een biografie van een van de meest kleurrijke kunstenaars van de tweede helft van de twintigste eeuw, maar ook de weergave van een nog niet eerder beschreven deel van het artistieke leven in Amsterdam in de roerige jaren zeventig en tachtig.
