Modern Australian women : paintings & prints 1925-1945 by Jane Hylton( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the mid-1920s when Australian art was beginning to atrophy into clichéd conservative landscapes, it was saved by women, who injected vitality and a new approach to style and subject matter.Artists such as Margaret Preston, Thea Proctor, Grace Crowley, Dorrit Black and Ethel Spowers were the pioneers and promoters of modernism in Australia, exploring new ideas about what art could portray and introducing artistic developments such as Cubism. Their paintings and prints challenged other artists and certainly challenged Australian audiences.Many of these 'modern' women led adventurous and unconventional lives. They travelled and studied in Europe. Many were financially independent and did not need to conform to the requirements of a (largely male) conventional and conservative art-buying public. Most chose to remain unmarried and childless so as to devote themselves to their art.Modern Australian Women: paintings and prints 1925-1945 is a major exhibition focussing on Australia's great women artists of the modernist period. It includes important and iconic works by the well-known names of Australian art history - Margaret Preston, Grace Crowley, Grace Cossington Smith - as well as works by artists such as Clarice Beckett and Stella Bowen who have only recently begun to receive the attention they deserve.Modern Australian Women: paintings and prints 1925-1945 is an Art Gallery of South Australia Travelling Exhibition. This exhibition is supported by Marsh, the Australian Women's Weekly and Visions of Australia

Rupert Bunny : artist in Paris by Rupert Bunny( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rupert Bunny (1864–1947) is an exotic in the history of Australian art. A creator of grand, sumptuous paintings of Parisian life in the late 19th century, Bunny became one of the most successful artists of his generation. Bunny's romantic portrayals of beautiful women at leisure capture the charm and idyllic life of France's "beautiful era" – the seemingly endless summer of the belle époque. His dream-like paintings of mythological scenes reveal an inspired and imaginative view of life and art. Rupert Bunny's international success over the five decades he spent in Paris saw his work exhibited throughout Europe and collected by the leading museums. He also led a fascinating and cosmopolitan life with Nellie Melba, Auguste Rodin, Claude Debussy and Sarah Bernhardt among his acquaintances."--Art Gallery of New South Wales website
