(p.103) 5 Art and the Environment: New Visions from Old
Australia’s Empire

Anne Gray

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the ways artists have portrayed the Australian landscape, and how this reflects both their own relationship to the environment and that of their society. It analyses how the continuities between European and colonial artistic styles and techniques produced the so-called ‘new visions from old’. It argues that that reliance on imperial borrowings was not the hallmark of an inauthentic, derivative culture but the key to an original vision of Australia’s Empire.

Keywords:   Australian artists, Australian landscape, artistic styles, European art, colonial art, imperial borrowings, Empire
