Concise Dictionary of Australian Artists by Gwenda Robb, Elaine Smith

This Concise Dictionary of Australian Artists fills the need for an authoritative reference book, conveniently portable and within the means of students and all others interested in art. Intended to be representative rather than comprehensive, the text covers a wide range of styles, media, regions, ethnic origins and artistic tendencies over more than two centuries. Entries are thoroughly reliable in accord with up-to-date scholarship, rejecting entrenched fallacies and untested assumptions. Much of the material has never before been published.
