Adelaide Tours - In The Steps of Stella Bowen

Description

What’s the link between quiet 1890s North Adelaide and the radical world of 1920s European art and literature? Meet Stella Bowen.

One of Australia’s great war artists, Bowen was a remarkable South Australian who abandoned the home she dismissed as a “queer little backwater of intellectual timidity” at the age of 20.

Using Bowen's own words and oft-incisive observations, join us for an amusingly subversive view of turn-of-the-century North Adelaide.
