Art, Australian.
"This book was created from a special issue of ART and Australia (published in September 1992) which focussed on eroticism and sexual imagery in Australian art. It traces a historical if somewhat idiosyncratic path through the subject." "Dinah Dysart, Editor of ART and Australia, has contributed an insightful overview of eroticism and sexuality in Australian art. Erotica in the colonial period is explored by Jane Lennon, and interpretations of eroticism are discussed in an interview led by Peter Timms. Leigh Astbury has contributed a fascinating view of death and eroticism in the Anzac legend." "Artists well-known for their work in this area are given individual attention: Richard Larter is profiled by Joanna Mendelssohn, Mike Brown's turbulent history with sexual imagery is discussed by Richard Haese, and eroticism and mysticism in Dale Frank's work is interpreted by Jane Magon. Sexuality in the work of contemporary women artists is explored in a lively article by Felicity Fenner." "Extensively illustrated and attractively designed, this book will be an invaluable addition to literature on this subject. Featuring 25 colour plates in 52 pages, it is introduced by a foreword by Leon Paroissien, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
