Summary
  • "This important new book looks at one of the most distinctive periods in the history of Australian art, bracketed between the two world wars from 1915 into the 1940s. The Sydney moderns were progressive artists at the forefront of the development of modernism in Australia. They produced exuberant, cosmopolitan paintings, prints, sculptures, designs and applied arts in response to and as part of the changing modern world and the international modernist movement. With the rise of the new city, artists explored and promoted modernity through the revolutions in colour and light which accompanied European modernism, and advanced the forms of abstraction. These artists presented the modern metropolis and the dynamic patterns of modern living under Sydney{u2019}s light-filled skies or in coloured interiors as new realms of visual experience.

  • This important new book looks at one of the most distinctive periods in the history of Australian art, bracketed between the two world wars from 1915 into the 1940s. The Sydney moderns were progressive artists at the forefront of the development of modernism in Australia. They produced exuberant, cosmopolitan paintings, prints, sculptures, designs and applied arts in response to and as part of the changing modern world and the international modernist movement. Artists include Ralph Balson, Harold Cazneaux, Grace Cossington Smith, Roy de Maistre, Margaret Preston, Thea Proctor and Roland Wakelin, amongst many others. Sydney Moderns comprises artworks from the Gallery's collection, as well as other public and private collections.
