Book Description Oxford University Press Melbourne 1992, 1992. 27.0 x 19.5cms, 890pp, b/w Illusts very good+ hardback & dustwrapper This book redefines 'Australian art' to include the amateurs and artists who worked in hitherto ignored or despised categories. And in the process, it overthrows the standard definition of 'colonial art' as the sole province of Anglocentric male painters. Its list of 2500 artists includes Aboriginal Australians who worked in European media and many European women who painted watercolours of native flowers. Its 200 contributors have written pithy, informative biographies. The blurb concludes that this book's 'impeccable scholarship will ensure that it becomes the standard reference on the art history of Australia'. Scarce title. Bookseller Inventory # 147078
