With his remarkable evocations of light and the landscape, Australian artist Arthur Streeton (1867-1943) remains one of the most enduring and popular painters in Australian art. His sun-drenched impressionist landscapes from the 1880s, joyful depictions of Sydney beaches and harbour in the 1890s, and pastoral paintings from the 1920s and 30s continue to define an image of our unique environment for many Australians. This richly illustrated monograph features over 275 paintings, including his much-loved Australian paintings as well as works from Streeton’s international career painting in Egypt, Venice, England, Italy and the battlefields of First World War France. A comprehensive publication including 16 essays from historians and curators from around the country, Streeton presents the artist as a master of light with a love for the landscape and a deep concern for the destruction of the forests and degradation of waterways, heralding our conservation and climate-change debates today.
