Australian Painting, 1788-1970

By Bernard Smith


Established as a standard work on Australian painting, this book by the doyen of Australian art history provides the most detailed account yet published of the great changes that have radically altered the art scene during the past two decades.

A new chapter by Terry Smith discusses contemporary artists and their work within the context of “the crisis of modernity” and the changing physical, social, and artistic environment. Generously illustrated with over 400 illustrations, 80 in colour, the book details the life and achievements of most of Australia’s leading artists and a great many minor ones.
