"If an aboriginal was to make a name as an artist in the white man's medium, it was right that the first should be a man of Albert's ability. My first thought, when Albert started to paint, was to give him a chance to show he was capable of proving that an Australian aboriginal was at least able to paint as well as a white artist. Albert has given the answer to this; but the main thing he lost in the process through his keenness to succeed was his aboriginal sense of decoration." Page 19. Unfortunately, there are other parts of the text which could be taken out of cultural and temporal context. As such the book has dated. Nevertheless a very good reference on the Hermannsburg School aborigines, and of the Arunta tribe Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s).
