When exhibiting in London as a young Australian sculptor in 1934, Gerald Lewers was described a s a pioneer, an artist "destined to become a powerful influence in the cause of modernism in Australia".

Peter Pinson confirms this prediction. While tracing Lewers' challenges and opportunities, Pinson brings alive the period in which he worked.

Lewers became known for his use of Australian timbers to capture drama and movements - qualities that also characterise a number of his major commissions, particularly fountains, in which movement and the spill of water are integrated with form.
