Tiffany’s Research Notes on “Three Dresses”:

A striking work which shows Lindsay’s love of the female form and his dramatic use of contrasts, this image is a faithful reproduction of Norman Lindsay’s original aquatint and etching “Three Dresses”, which he completed in 1930.

Lindsay cleverly highlights the voluptuous figures of the three women featuring their soft skin tones against the dark background.

The title of the work also reveals Lindsay’s wit – the three women are all shown wearing some form of dress, with one less than others! The beautiful central nude wears nothing but a delicate beaded arrangement and an exotic head-dress!

“Three Dresses” also portrays Norman’s skill at being able to show the intricacy and movement of fabrics and lace, a talent for which he was particularly renowned with the difficult and painstaking method of etching.

Original etchings of “Three Dresses” are held in the collections of the Queensland Art Gallery, the Mitchell Library at the State Library of NSW and the National Trust Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum in the Blue Mountains.
