The Changi Murals PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Changi Murals free pdf When Bombardier Stanley Warren first painted the Changi Murals in Luke's Chapel, Roberts Barracks, Singapore in 1942, his fellow prisoners knew so little about him that they made up their own 'myths' about the mysterious painter. This carefully researched account reveals the truth behind the man and his murals. It follows Stanley Warren's journey through World War II: from soldier, to prisoner of war, and his return to civillian life. It also tells of his remarkable, long-standing relationship with the murals - from when he was seriously ill as he began to paint the first of the five murals to how he was identified in 1959 as the lost artist of Changi, and how he returned twice to Singapore to restore the paintings. With over 70 illustrations, including full colour reproductions of the Changi Murals, archival photographs, sketches and maps.
