A Way With The Fairies: The Lost Story of Sculptor Ola Cohn

Author(s): Barbara Lemon


Ola Cohn was a pioneer of modernist sculpture in Australia and her Fairies’ Tree in Melbourne’s Fitzroy Gardens has delighted generation of children.

A Way With The Fairies brings Ola’s extraordinary story back to life: from the Bendigo School of Mines to London’s Royal College of Art, from the banks of the Rhine to the caves of Penzance, from the chaos of Ola’s East Melbourne studio to the quiet of the Fitzroy Gardens, where she lovingly carved her fairy characters for the children of Melbourne.
