LANE, TERENCE - Australian Impressionism

Title: Australian Impressionism
Description: National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Vic., 2007. Quarto; gatefold paperback; 352pp., with many colour illustrations. Minor wear. Near fine. Exhibition catalogue. This book hopes to take up the story from the hugely successful Golden Summers exhibition, concentrating however on the five key initiators of the movement and limiting the timescale to the period 1883-1897. Tom Roberts, in company with the Paris-trained Spanish artists Ramon Casas and Laurea Barrau, his Melbourne friend Dr William Maloney and John Russell - the only Australian painter to be directly in touch with Monet and mainstream Impressionism, visited Spain in 1883. It was also the year in which Roberts worked briefly under Gerome at Julian's Academy in Paris. The exhibition and catalogue concentrates on the participants in the first camps at Box Hill, Mentone and Eaglemont and does not extend to major figures of the second phase of Australian plein-air painting including the group who worked at Charterisville in the Heidelberg/Eaglemont area.
