Aboriginal Art

For thousands of years Australian Aborigines have been making art. A manifestation of the creative forces of the Dreamtime, art is also a means of expressing individual and group identity. Howard Morphy surveys the great variety in Aboriginal art, showing the interrelationships between such diverse art forms as body painting, dance, the decoration of weapons and utensils, and painting on bark and canvas.

Howard Morphy is Director of the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research at the Australian National University, Canberra.

'This is a wonderful book by the pre-eminent scholar of Aboriginal art. For anyone who wants to know about Aboriginal art and the people who make it, this is the most important, indeed brilliant, book in 20 years.' (Fred Myers, Department of Anthropology, New York University) 'Howard Morphy's Aboriginal Art is far and away the best survey of this subject to have appeared to date.' (Luke Taylor, Senior Curator, National Museum of Australia) 'Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing.' (Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London) 'The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods...I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools.' (Joachim Pissarro, Yale University)
