Visions from the Past
This book tells an Australian story. Through the eyes of an artist, we discover the Australia of the mid-19th century, developing from the days of convicts and freewheeling immigrants and adventurers into a young, dynamic country, attracting permanent settlers, pastoralists as well as those escaping religious persecution in their home country. With permanence comes art, and we experience through the narrator’s keen observation the development of the early Australian art movement and the life of its artists, all part of creating this vibrant, new country.
