Description : Australian Galleries: The Purves Family Business. The First Four Decades is a celebration of the significant contribution Australian Galleries has had on the Australian commercial gallery scene since it's inception in 1956. Led with formidable energy and determination by its founders, Tam and Anne Purves, and continued to the present day by their son, Stuart Purves, Australian Galleries pioneered the professionally operated commercial gallery, providing a platform to promote the reputation of an important group of Australian artists in the emerging post war art market. Spanning the period of 1956 - 1999, Caroline Field's sensitive and revealing narrative combines the personal story of the Purves family against the backdrop of an exciting and stimulating period in the Australian art world. Appealing to a diverse readership this book includes fascinating archival photography, anecdotes and memoirs from major artists, critics, collectors and supporters of the gallery providing a significant insight into the relationships, personalities, activities and events that occurred in the Gallery's early growth. Caroline Field presents an engaging record of the rich and colourful history of the formative decades of one of the nation's earliest commercial gallery spaces, and illustrates the enormous contribution Australian Galleries has made towards the promotion and public acceptance of Australian modern art.

Description : The Melbourne-based photgrapher, Sonia Payes, has spent two years travelling to 60 contemporary artists' studios and homes - with one notable living as far away as Tuscany! Each of the sixty artists is captured in a large portrait and then receives a further six pages for an essay by a selected author and exciting photographs of them at work in their studios - or simply walking the dog, cooking dinner or climbing a tree! This spectacular large format, 400 page, highly sophisticated publication contains 60 short essays contributed by leading Australian arts writers, critis, and acedemics drawn from across the nation. Intended to showcase the work and studio conditions of leading Australian artists at the 2007 Venice Biennale in June this year, the publication is our most ambitious to date. It is simply stunning.
