Aboriginal Art, Second Edition (World of Art)
by Wally Caruana
Book Description
Aboriginal artists today practice in the world's longest continuous tradition of art. Widely sought after, Aboriginal art has now taken its place in the collections of the great museums and galleries.
This is the first concise survey of the full range of the work of Australia's indigenous artists from all parts of the continent. Building on traditions that stretch back at least fifty millennia, these artists have worked in a variety of contexts, from the sacred realm of ceremony to more public spheres, and in media that include painting, sculpture, engraving, constructions, weaving, and—most recently—photography, printmaking, and textile design.

The second edition includes additional illustrations and a new section covering the most recent developments in Aboriginal art. 210 illustrations, 70 in color.
