Sydney: Legend Press, 1956.

"It was almost certainly Battarbee's paintings of their homeland that first induced Namatjira and his Aboriginal followers to take up water-colour painting. There is perhaps no higher tribute possible to a painter from his public than the admiration that has been bestowed by a dispossessed native population upon an intruding white man engaged in interpreting for them their own landscape."
