Description

Landscape painting in Australia in the 19th century is important both as an expression of colonists' attitudes to the country they had only recently settled and as a record of changes Europeans wrought on the landscape. Tim Bonyhady discusses the position of artists in 19th-century Australian society - their incomes, social status, societies and exhibitions - and considers how landscape painters concentrated on a range of contrasting aspects of Australian scenery. He defines and explains the sequence of opposing images which were most important in Australian landscape painting between 1820 and 1890, and sets each theme within its cultural context.show more
