9780195533828: The Yellow Lady: Australian Impressions of Asia

Named after a notorious Norman Lindsay impression of Asia, this work traces the history of Australians' perceptions of their Asian and Pacific hemisphere from pre-colonial time to 1991. The book adopts a roughly chronological approach, from Aboriginal contacts with Indonesia, through the colonial period when responses to both Asia and the Pacific depended on whether artists considered themselves attached to the European past or to the regional present, to a period when increasing numbers of Asians migrate to Australia and Asia's financial dominance becomes unavoidable.

Colour and black and white illustrations, 260pp, notes, references, index, dustjacket patchily faded, lower cover and dustjacket a little damp damaged, small quarto. "Beginning with early Aboriginal contact with Indonesians, The Yellow Lady shows how chances for harmonious co-existence with the neighbourhood were lost in the colonial period. Successive wars set back this process of adaptation. In the final section, as increasing numbers of Asians migrate to Australia and Asian countries become economically dominant, Australian images of Asia undergo rapid change.".
