LOOKING AT LANDSCAPE – Jane Deeth. Published by The Glover Society Inc.
ISBN: 0646558404 9780646558400
“What artists have chosen to depict in landscape painting has shifted over time. Today this genre of art-making is as not only about representing the natural world as we see it, but increasingly is also about how we construct and understand the world we live in. In this 48-page full-colour book we look through the eyes of colonial artist John Glover (1767–1849) and artists who have entered the Glover Prize for landscape painting, in order to examine the different ways landscape can be expressed and understood.” Tasmanian Museums Australia Events Blog
“John Glover (1767-1849) is considered the father of Australian landscape painting, and spent the last 19 years of his life in Tasmania. Deeth’s book looks at the different ways landscape can be expressed and understood by examining not only Glover’s work, but many of the artists who have entered the Glover Prize for landscape painting.” The Tasmanian Writers’ Centre
I have yet to see the book, nor have I received any feedback from my friends, but I am looking forward to reading a copy. When I do, I shall write and post a review.
