Oxford University Press, 2001. — 268 p.This comprehensive survey uniquely covers both Aboriginal art and that of European Australians, providing a revealing examination of the interaction between the two. Painting, photography, bark painting, rock art, sculpture, and the decorative arts are all explored to display the rich texture of Australian art traditions. Well-known artists such as Margaret Preston, Rover Thomas, and Sidney Nolan are all discussed, as are the natural history illustrators, Aboriginal draughtsmen, and pastellists, whose work is only now being brought to light by new research. Taking the European colonization of the continent in 1788 at his starting point, Sayers integrates important issues concerning colonial art and women artists into this fascinating new story of Australian art. Andrew Sayers is Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia. Previously he was Assistant Director (Collections) at the National Gallery of Australia. Between 1985 and 1996 he was Curator of Australian Drawings at the National Gallery of Australia. He was responsible for several retrospective exhibitions of the drawings of Australian artists. His definitive study Drawing in Australia was published in 1989, following the extensive survey exhibition mounted for the Bicentennial in 1988. He is the author of Sidney Nolan: The Ned Kelly Story (1994) and Aboriginal Artists of the Nineteenth Century (1994).
