Rose Lindsay Book A Model Life

Model WifeLife, a book that traces Rose through her early modelling days, her meeting with Norman Lindsay, their life together in Sydney and Springwood and their travels to England and America.

G. Wells, Fanny Hurst, Edna Ferber and Frank Lloyd Wright, Rose Lindsay – A Model Life – is available at Etching House.

She was model and wife of Norman Lindsay (one of Australia’s most controversial and best known artists), master printmaker, business woman and mother of two, Rose Lindsay should rightfully be regarded as one of the outstanding female personalities of twentieth century Australia.
