Margaret Olley: A Life In Paint is an intimate one-hour documentary about one of Australia's best-loved painters. A well-known figure from the time she was painted by William Dobell in 1948, Olley's celebrity status tended to overshadow her life as a painter. This film puts Margaret OIley the painter on centre stage. Many believe her last works - those painted in the 18 months leading up to her death on 26 July 2011 - were amongst her finest.
