New Worlds from Old

Author(s): Andrew Sayers

Art

Australia and the United States were the last two great landmasses to be explored and settled by Europeans. The encounter between man and nature, and the portrayal of new, expanding frontiers, inspired artists of exceptional ability in both nations. Ranging from Thomas Cole to Winslow Homer in America, and from John Glover to Tom Roberts in Australia, this publication opens a dialogue between the artworks of the two new worlds, bringing together more than 100 major nineteenth-century landscape works by artists both known and little known--exploring essential similarities and differences in theme, style, social and political origin, as well as the traditions of the picturesque and the sublime and of genius loci.
