This book follows the rise of a distinctive school of Australian art that first emerged in the 1940s. Beginning with the artists of the Angry Penguins movement, Arthur Boyd, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester and Sidney Nolan, whose work exhibited a new strain of surrealism and expressionism, the book continues with the rich variety of 1970s work by Jan Seberg, Robert Jacks and George Baldessin, moving through to contemporary artists such as Rover Thomas and Judy Watson. Stephen Coppel traces the major developments in Australian art from the 1940s to the present day, and examines the significant interplay with the British art scene and the recent rise of Aboriginal printmaking.
"Published to accompany the exhibition Out of Australia : prints and drawings from Sidney Nolan to Rover Thomas at the British Museum from 26 May to 11 September 2011"--Title page verso
