Aboriginal artists today practise in the world's longest continuous tradition of art - and perhaps the last to be generally recognized. Widely sought after, Aboriginal art has now taken its place in the collections of the great museums and galleries. This is the first concise survey of the full range of the works of Australia's indigenous artists from all parts of the continent: from Arnhem Land and the desert, the Kimberly and northern Queensland, to modern towns and cities. Building on traditions that stretch back at least fifty millennia, these artist have worked in a variety of contexts, from the sacred and secret realm of ceremony to more public spheres, and in media that that includes painting, sculpture, engraving, constructions, weaving, photography, printmaking and textile design. This book is in almost new condition.
