Oxford University Press, 1975 - Aesthetics, Australian - 299 pages
This book brings together, in the form of an annotated critical anthology, a selection of the writing by, and about, artists who lived and worked in Australia between 1770 and 1914. The editor has built his selections around the two themes of Art and Nature, providing a wide variety of approaches while at the same time indicating in his own commentary the ways in which these ideas were linked to the emergence of traditional attitudes.
