Summary
Description and analysis of the work of nineteenth century Aboriginal artists which concentrates on the work of three artists from south-eastern Australia; Barak, Tommy McCrae and Mickey of Ulladulla, but also includes artists from northern and Central Australia; concentrates on the medium of drawing, most often in European materials of pencil, paper and ink; works contain traditional symbolism and subjects but also depict contemporary life and are examples of cultural contact and interaction between Aboriginal and European culture; discussion of how works have been received in the twentieth century and their significance as precursor to contemporary Aboriginal art; includes a chapter by Carol Cooper on the traditional visual culture of south east Australia which argues that figurative art was an established indigenous tradition before the arrival of Europeans; includes comprehensive catalogue and detailed biographies : Barak, Timothy, Tommy McRae, Mickey of Ulladulla, Oscar, Charlie Flannigan, Billiamook, Jemmy Miller, Wandy Wandy, Paddy and Davie, Erlikilyika, Yertebrida Solomon, Legalle, Gallyput, Black Johnny, Billibillary
