Faulconbridge, via Springwood, Blue Mountains set in extensive grounds, the single storey house with its external painting and etching studios was the home of Norman Lindsay (1879-1969), one of Australia?s most controversial, exceptional and prolific artists. It was here that he created etchings, oils, watercolours, sculptures, the fine ship models which he made as a pastime, and where he wrote the children?s classic, The Magic Pudding. Over the years, Lindsay transformed his estate, adding classical colonnades and a Roman courtyard to the house, and sculpting nymphs, satyrs and fountains to embellish the grounds.
