About this Unit
This unit investigates themes in Australian art in the late eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Topics covered are: images of the colonial world; the contexts involved in reading this new world, maps, illustrations as well as topographical images. The cultural relationships with Great Britain are explored through the contests over the Australian ‘eye’ with particular focus on the Heidelberg school, Federation and the First World War. The subject finishes with the debates over a newly arrived Modernism.
