Summary "The Kluge-Ruhe Collections, now held by the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, is one of the largest and best-documented collections of Australian Aboriginal art outside Australia. Art from the Land focuses on the desert region and Arnhem Land, drawing on the many fine works in the collection and on the authors' detailed knowledge of the artists and their communities to illustrate the unique and complex nature of Australian Aboriginal artistic expression."--BOOK JACKET
