Brought to Light - a publication on the Australian art collection of the Queensland Art Gallery - presents a new model for the documentation of visual arts collections in Australia. It is not a catalogue but an anthology of 60 original essays on selected works of interest. Approximately 150 works are illustrated and discussed in 60 original essays from scholars, artists and art historians, who place works in historical and social contexts in ways that expand the reader's knowledge of specific works of art and Australian art history. Comparative illustrations from other public collections and artists' archives are a special feature of this book. Featured artists include: Arthur Streeton, Rupert Bunny, George Lambert, Roland Wakelin, Grace Cossington Smith, Lloyd Rees, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, Margaret Preston, Sidney Nolan, Ian Fairweather and Albert Namatjira.. Contributing authors: Elizabeth Churcher, Mary Eagle, Julie Ewington, Sasha Grishin, Doug Hall, Humphrey McQueen, Joanna Mendelssohn, Drusilla Modjeska, Margo Neale, Barry Pearce, Mark Pennings, Andrew Sayers and Virginia Spate. Features over 300 illustrations (many full-page).
