Thanks to the persistence of David Marshall, an enthusiastic fan of Brett Whiteley and the film WHITELEY, an important art history resource is now available online for the first time. David wrote to the documentary’s producers to learn more about how we accessed an ‘artist to artist’ audio interview between Brett Whiteley and Australia’s leading surrealist artist, James Gleeson, which was used in the film. Gleeson spoke to almost a hundred artists about their personal creative practice; these recordings were acquired by the National Library of Australia for their James Gleeson oral history collection: James Gleeson interviews Australia's major artists. However, the recording we licensed was not available to the public; in fact, it was the only one of 98 that had never been approved for release and posting online by the library. David continued to look into the matter, and as a result of his tenacity, the material is now available for all to hear! It was recorded on Friday the 18th of May, 1979, and contains a wealth of Whiteley gold.
