Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Does Australian art have a history or is it just a series of belated footnotes to European and American artistic development? This compelling study argues that because of the objective conditions of a society transplanted to a remote and strange place, art acquired a subtly different meaning, as old resources were applied to new problems. 180 illus. 60 in color.

Synopsis:

This is an overview of the important developments of Australian artists in all media. It traces the history of Australian art from the beginning, portraying the objective conditions of a society transplanted to a remote and strange place, and explaining the development of a unique and striking art.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 218) and index.
