Summary "'Outlines of Australian Art' is about the Joseph Brown Collection. It presents a complete chronological history of 150 years of Australian Art. Since most of the 157 works shown here have never been reproduced before, the book is a unique record of a collection of national importance... The 230 paintings and sculptures have been assembled over a period of twenty years and the great strength of the collection lies in the Colonial and Victorian paintings. Not only are Glover, Martens, Von Guerard, Chevalier and Buvelot represented by some of their best works but, as nowhere else in Australia, a number of lesser-known mid-nineteenth century artists is brought to our notice such as William Dexter, Chester Earles, Richard Noble, Henry Gritten and J. H. Carse. There is a special personal flavour to the collection that comes from the presence of work by Josl Bergner, Vic O'Connor, Albert Tucker, Arthur Boyd and other artists of Joseph Brown's own period and generation. The oustanding paintings by John Peter Russell and Roy de Maistre serve to remind us that in his capacity as an art dealer, Joseph Brown was responsible for bringing these and the works of other expatriates back to Australia."--Book jacket
