Turner to Monet: The Triumph of Landscape Painting by Christine Dixon & Ron Radford
Turner to Monet: The Triumph of Landscape Painting by Christine Dixon & Ron Radford (National Gallery of Australia / 2008)
'Catalogue published to accompany the National Gallery of Australia's major exhibition, which presents a new look at landscape painting in the 19th century as it transformed from the depiction of known places to explorations of mood and time passing. From the orderly beauty of the artist's garden and portraits of estates, painters portrayed newly explored terrain and then ventured further into the wilderness. They sought out the extremes of nature, elemental and untamable: stormy coasts and mysterious mountains, volcanic eruptions and raging fires. The book reproduces works in this vein by the finest artists of the time; Turner, Constable, Friedrich, Corot, Courbet, Glover, Von Guerard, Church, Streeton, Roberts, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin and Monet etc, gathered from public and private collections in Australia and round the world.'
Very good condition large-format softcover art book on which the binding remains tight and the pages are clean, unmarked and free from notes and underlining. No creasing to cover or spine but some abrasions visible to back cover. Also, 'Thanet' (name of previous owner?) written in biro in top right-hand corner of opening half-title page.
