This comprehensive survey uniquely covers both Aboriginal art and that of European Australians, providing a revealing examination of the interaction between the two. Painting, bark art, photography, rock art, sculpture, and the decorative arts are all fully explored to present the rich textureof Australian art traditions.Well-known artists such as Margaret Preston, Rover Thomas to Sidney Nolan, are all discussed, as are the natural history illustrators, Aboriginal draughtsmen, and pastellists, whose work is only now being brought to light by new research. Taking the European colonization of the continent in 1788 ashis starting point, Sayers highlights important issues concerning colonial art and women artists in this fascinating new story of Australian art.
