'Encounters with Australian Modern Art' represents a vital milestone in the presentation of Australian art to a world-wide readership. It is published in French and English, and lavishly illustrated with more than 200 iconic images, many drawn from the collection of the TarraWarra museum of Art. Maudie Palmer, Director of the Museum and Editor of the book, devised its concept and selected the authors. They, like herself and the Besen's, have witnessed first-hand the development of Australian Modernism during the second half of the twentieth century when the careers of its leading artist practitioners were firmly established. During those decades, many of these became acknowledged national identites - some enjoying overseas acclaim. The authors - Christopher Heathcote, Patrick MacCaughey and Sarah Thomas - have each adopted a unique approach to their text, bringing fresh visions to our understanding of images that may sometimes look strange to us and rest of the world. Christopher Heathcote explores the art of the 1950s and 60s post-war reconstruction era. It witnessed the expansion of Australian suburbs and their growing populations of idiosyncratic urbanites.
During these decades the earlier Australian landscape painting tradition survived and was further strengthened by the creations of artists like John Olsen and Fred Williams. Patrick MacCaughey's approach is both refreshing and revealing. He pairs artists such as Brett Whiteley and Fred William Please click here to ask a question
