Compass - Uniquely Barbara

Barbara Blackman's life is a testimony to a passionate search for knowledge and understanding. She was an artists' model and muse of Arthur Boyd, Sydney Nolan and her husband Charles. Later she became a prominent writer and essayist - 50 years of letters with the late poet Judith Wright were published to significant acclaim. A lifelong supporter of the arts, she will be honoured in a dinner by the National Gallery of Victoria – the first time a blind person has been given such a high arts honour. Geraldine Doogue interviews Barbara Blackman, now in her 80th year, about her rich, eventful life and spiritual journey.
