For well over a century, Frederick McCubbin has been one of Australia's best-loved artists. This book features some 70 works -- many of which have not been previously published -- covering the last decade of his life, a key period in the development of his art. Most well-known for his evocative bush scenes, in this later period McCubbin focused on the landscape around his homes in South Yarra and at Mount Macedon, views of the docks and industry, city life, portraits, and interiors. He was one of the first Australian artists to depict the modern world. The book traces the radical changes in McCubbin's work after he viewed the works of JMW Turner, Claude Monet, and John Constable in London and Paris in 1907, and seeks to redefine this important Australian artist, showing the way he developed a freer and more expressive art through his handling of paint and use of bright glowing colors.… (more)
