Maritime painting in Australia began with the First Fleet and for many years reflected some of the European traditions of the genre. But Australia presented its early artists with problems and challenges that called for a different approach. For the early colonists the ocean often provoked feelings of separation and isolation. Not surprisingly, many early maritime artists painted not on the shore looking towards the sea, but on ships looking towards the shore. As the colonies became established, however, the sea also came to represent prosperity, and maritime art in Australia burgeoned with the development of whaling and the growth of trade.

About the Author:

Martin Terry has been Curator, Exploration, of the Australian National Maritime Museum since 1987.

Review:

'Covering whaling, exploring, emigration, and more, the pictures are a rare glimpse of the reality of life at sea in these early years. Produced with the trademark finesse of the Miegunyah Press imprint, this is a magnificent volume.' -- Imprints Guide, Adelaide Review, December 1998

'Few books combine text and pictures so skilfully and accessibly. The discerning curator's eye is evident in the organisation by historial themes, in both selection and juxtaposition of images, and in the elegant, direct commentary on the historical context and individual works.' -- John Wade, Signals Magazine
