An Opera House in Every Home 1972
For most of his life Eric Thake lived in and around Melbourne, a city he loved and which was a constant source of inspiration for his art. This website explores the art of Eric Thake by drawing on items in the State Library of Victoria's collection. These items include an unsurpassed collection of manuscript materials, drawings, sketches, photographs, prints, and illustrations. Words and images from the Library’s collections of Thake's papers and artwork - some never before published - will lead you into his world of wry humour and bold designs.
