Interviewed by Robin Hughes, art historian Bernard Smith talks about his life and career. Born in Sydney in 1916, to a working-class Irish mother, Rose Anne, who came to Cairns in 1915 and fell pregnant to a gardener, Charles Smith, he grew up as a state ward with a foster family in Burwood. He got a scholarship to teacher's college and his first posting was to Murraguldrie, a "state pine forest, half way between Wagga and Tumbarumba". His next posting brought him back to Sydney, where he met his wife Kate. He gave up painting and has since taught at every level with the aim of developing an audience for art - "the essential part of his life's agenda". (From Australia, in English)
