Russell Drysdale : defining the modern Australian landscape by Christopher Heathcote( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russell Drysdale: Defining the modern Australian landscape takes a fresh look at one of the nation's major modern artists, surveying Drysdale's approach to landscape across painting, drawing and photography. Using original research, Christopher Heathcote highlights what the artist saw as urgent issues facing Australia mid-century, revealing the underpinning symbolism of Drysdale's outback imagery. Drysdale's desert scenes are deceptive. Not only do his works directly confront problems in land management and the effects of drought and environmental degradation, we see also images revealing the plight of Australian soldiers in the Second World War, and others referring to the aftermath of the Atomic cataclysm. Drysdale shows deep concern for Aboriginal peoples, positioning Indigenous figures within his paintings to convey his distress at their dispossession. This book also explores Drysdale's efforts to blend landscape painting with surrealism, showcasing many works and photographs connected to his journeys into the Australian interior. Revealing enduring questions about land and environment, Russell Drysdale: Defining the modern Australian landscape confirms Drysdale as a man ahead of his time. Through visual art, he challenged established perceptions of the national landscape
Contemporary Australian drawing #1 by Janet McKenzie( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Janet McKenzie visited Australia in 2008 to update her research and exercise a global perspective on the current state of drawing in this country.

They include prominent figures such as Peter Booth, Allan Mitelman, John Olsen, Mirka Mora, Mike Parr, Kevin Lincoln, Jenny Watson, Jan Senbergs and Wendy Stavrianos, among many others. Recognition of the importance of drawing has sometimes wavered in recent times, but most artists would agree that drawing, in whatever medium and however it is executed, is an essential process in the development of ideas leading to creative outcomes. Often, as art history suggests and this book demonstrates, drawing can be an art in and of itself. This timely account of the art of drawing in Australia is lavishly illustrated and will have wide appeal

Discovering Dobell by Christopher Heathcote( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discovering Dobell offers an intimate glimpse of William Dobell, the artist whose heart remained anchored in the daily life of everyday people, from the streets of Depression-raked London to Sydney's Kings Cross. Christopher Heathcote demonstrates how Dobell developed ideas from sketches to paintings. In some instances the book identifies previously unknown relationships between drawings, gouaches and important oils. Discovering Dobell features the artist's controversial and recognisable portraits of Joshua Smith, Dame Mary Gilmore and Helena Rubinstein, alongside other vital strands of his output, including affectionate images of grinning ockers, struggling young mothers, cheeky street children at play, and haughty women intent on keeping-up-appearances. This overview is rounded out with Dobell's experimental drawings and paintings from New Guinea, as well as his little-known ventures into abstract form. This book introduces the creative achievements of this great Australian painter for a new generation of art lovers
