Written by a poet whose contribution to contemporary Australian poetry is renowned: The Ash Range (1987) and Selected Poems (1996) are among his better known poetry volumes. A vividly written account of Australia’s visual arts from Federation through to the end of the Depression, the period from which the modernist movement evolved. It draws together areas of Australian cultural history which have formerly been treated through separate disciplines eg. feminism and modernism.A fascinating re-evaluation of the influences of such artists as Grace Cossington Smith, Norman Lindsay, May Gibbs and Lloyd Rees. It brings together the events and ideas that influenced these artists and seeded the perceptions of nationalism and internationalism.
