Synopsis: This book reveals some of the remarkable colonial works that form the cornerstones of the National Gallery of Australia’s collection of Australian prints.

The earliest intaglio prints were produced in New South Wales by a free settler, John Lewin, whose exquisitely hand-colored etchings of moths and birds were published in 1805 and 1808–13. The first views of the colony to be printed locally were published in 1812–14 by an entrepreneurial emancipist and engraved by the convicts assigned to him. From a culture of “making do” in the early decades of the penal settlement, the extent, quality, and scope of print production increased exponentially and kept pace with developments overseas. The backgrounds of the printmakers whose work is discussed varied greatly, with professional trade workers and artists making equally important contributions. By the mid-nineteenth century, printmaking was firmly established in key areas of commercial enterprise, science, architecture, art, advertising, illustrated books, and newspapers. Through the second half of the century printmaking in Australia continued to match developments overseas. One particular high point for wood-engravers was the production of the lavish Picturesque Atlas of Australasia, published between 1886–88, to coincide with the centenary of European settlement. Printed Images in Colonial Australia concludes with the photogravure of Tom Roberts’s painting commissioned to celebrate the federation of the Australian states in 1901.

The 377 images reproduced here, many of them exceedingly rare or long overlooked, are presented alongside Roger Butler’s original research and information not previously assembled to give full weight to the important role of the printed image in Australian art and culture.

About the Author: Roger Butler is senior curator of Australian prints, posters, and illustrated books at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

Book Description Der vorliegende Band zeigt einen Überblick über die prächtige Sammlung der National Gallery of Australia zu Druckgrafiken dieses Kontinents aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Die frühesten Arbeiten im Kupfertiefdruck entstanden von der Hand des Siedlers John Lewin, dessen handkolorierte Werke von Schmetterlingen und Vögeln schon um 1810 veröffentlicht wurden. Nach diesen handgemachten Anfängen wuchs die Qualität der Druckgrafiken rasch an und hielt Schritt mit den Entwicklungen in Übersee. In der Mitte des Jahrhunderts war dieses Handwerk in den großen Städten fest etabliert, Druckgrafiken erschienen im Bereich der Wissenschaften, der Architektur, Kunst, Werbung, in Zeitungen und in illustrierten Büchern. Einen Höhepunkt markiert die Produktion des aufwendigen »Picturesque Atlas of Australasia«, der zwischen 1886 und 1888 publiziert wurde, aber auch die Fotogravuren von Tom Roberts’ Gemälden, die zur Feier der Vereinigung der australischen Bundesstaaten im Jahre 1901 aufgelegt wurden. (Text engl.) 25,5 x 30,5 cm, 312 S., 377 farb. und s/w-Abb., geb. mit Schutzumschlag. Seller Inventory # 768065
