Quarto Size [approx 24cm x 30.5cm]. Mint copy in a Mint Dustjacket. A New book. Dustjacket protected in our purpose-made plastic sleeve. Illustrated with colour plates. Robust, professional packaging and tracking provided for all parcels. 279 pages. When in 2007 Robert Martiensen was discovered deceased in his derelict home in rural South Australia an incredible secret was revealed. Throughout the modest building were stacks of some 7,000 framed and unframed paintings all created after 1990 when this enigmatic, inflexible, highly erudite, but equally eccentric individual was retired from his employment as a primary school mathematics teacher. Robert Martiensen's story, based on interviews with those who knew him, is accompanied by more than 500 colour reproductions of his paintings – works which clearly demonstrate his fluctuating moods and intellectual interests while exhibiting remarkable aesthetic achievement.
