Summary

"Aboriginal artists continue to express the value of their ancient beliefs and evoke the depth of their relationship with the Australian landscape. The paintings are timeless, yet changing, like the land itself. Aboriginal paintings are a major contribution to Australian contemporary art. Jennifer Isaacs has selected a collection of traditional paintings which spans decades and which displays the distinctive styles of two regions of Australia: the western desert and Arnhem Land."--BOOK JACKET.
