An Artist with one arm…

On our New York End Tour, you can hear about Napier Waller, a famous Melbourne artist who lost his right arm in the trenches of France. Cheated out of a canvas career, he went on to produce fabulous mosaics: nine of which grace Melbourne. This is the facade of Newspaper House, built in 1931. The quote is Shakespeare, from Midsummer Night’s Dream.
