“A Young Person’s Guide to Art in Australia covers most aspects of Australian Art. It explains in clear and simple terms how changes came about in the style of painting and how in some cases, political and economic events determined the final pictures on canvas.
Examples have been drawn from all the major galleries in Australia to enable young people to visit their nearest gallery and appreciate those physical qualities in a picture which no book can convey.
the aim of this book is to stimulate young readers to view paintings with an enquiring mind, ,with confidence and, most importantly, with the knowledge that the galleries and their contents belong to them.
