This publication represents a generalist overview of Aboriginal culture with references provided to assist in developing a wider understanding of the subject. Its focus is the two-dimensional painted surface and the contemporary work of Aboriginal artists from remote Australia. Divided into two sections, 'Australian Aboriginal Art: Collecting Paintings' serves as both a historical reference as well as a collector's reference on Indigenous artists. The first section introduces the subject of collecting and gives an historical overview of the culture, including ideas such as the Dreaming, traditional ways of living and the contemporary Desert Art movement of the 1970s. Along with two fantastic essays by Dijon Mundine and Dr Susan Lowish, this section provides a solid grounding for anyone interested in collecting Aboriginal art. The second section features individual profiles of 90 highly regarded Aboriginal artists, highlighting their backgrounds, approaches and exhibitions along with examples of their work. With an engaging and elegant design, this book promises to be a fantastic resource.Artists include: Abie Jangala; Abie Loy Kemarre; Angelina Ngal; Albert Namatjira; Alex Mingelmanganu; Alma Webou; Anatari Tjakamarra; Barbara Weir; Billy Stockman Tjapaltjarri; Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri; Carol Maayatja Golding; Charlie Numblumoore; Charlie Tarawa Tjungurrayi; Chris Edwards; Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri; Daniel Walbidi; David Daymirringu Malangi; Dennis Nona; Djambawa Marawili; Dorothy Napangardi Robinson, among many others.
