Summary
A comprehensive and definitive history of Australian Art, now in a paperback edition. Sasha Grishin is a leading Australian art historian, art critic and curator who has published some twenty books and over two thousand articles on various aspects of art. This book is his magnum opus, a comprehensive and definitive history of Australian art. Lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched, Australian Art: A History provides an overview of the major developments in Australian art, from its origins to the present. The book commences with ancient Aboriginal rock art and early colonialists' interpretations of their surroundings, and moves on to discuss the formation of an Australian identity through art, the shock of early modernism and the notorious Heide circle. It finishes with the popular recognition of modern Indigenous art and contemporary Australian art and its place in the world. A major emphasis is placed on the art of the past fifty years, when both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian art have received widespread international acclaim. All major expressions of visual culture in Australia are addressed, including painting, sculpture, graphic arts, photography, applied arts, installation art and digital art
