'The strength of the work lies in its original approach linking the work of artists to their cultural background inside Australia and overseas ... This book is an indispensable and trusty companion to anyone fortunate enough to explore the treasures in Australian art galleries. Its thoughtful and clear analyses will add considerably to any visit.' Diana Dixon, Reference Reviews
'The overriding merit of [this book] is that it initiates new ways of seeing one of the finest, least known national schools of art.' The Times Literary Supplement
