Australia's Great Female Artistic Polymath (Whom You Probably Didn't Know About)
"Composer, adventurer, opportunist and benefactor" - as well as painter and critic - Peggy Glanville-Hicks was born in Melbourne 100 years ago this month. "[She] had an international career and enjoyed a mid-century artist-bohemian lifestyle that brought her into contact, sometimes intimately, with prominent creative figures of the day. Paul Bowles, Anaïs Nin, Yehudi Menuhin - even Theo Flynn, Errol's old man - were close friends."
