Chaim Bill Meyer, whose create life spans some six decades, is an established artist represented in national collections including the British Tate Gallery and National Gallery of Australia. His work exemplifies an integral aesthetic ideal: art which is both of the highest aesthetic calibre and at the same time is learnedly loyal to religious tradition and its teaching. Meyer came to this fusion of artistic expression and informed religious consciousness through a series of stages, which are documented in this book.
