Celebrating the best in modern Aboriginal art, this comprehensive survey contains more than 250 paintings and drawings from internationally recognized indigenous artists such as Rover Thomas, Emily Kngwarreye, and John Mawurndjul. Divided by region—from Western Australia and the Northern Territory to the art centers of Papunya and remote Bidyadanga—each section features an introductory essay, a detailed biography, and examples of the artist's work. Visually arresting, these pieces confirm the status indigenous art has gained over the last few decades.
