The Art of Frederick McCubbin

Melbourne: Lothian Publishing Company, 1916.

Limited Edition.

With an essay by James MacDonald and some remarks on Australian art by the artist.

Frederick McCubbin (1855-1917) was an Australian artist and an outstanding member of the Heidelberg School of Australian impressionism. A student of Eugen von Guerard, McCubbin's paintings remain iconic images of pioneer life in the wilderness. They were keystones in building a mythology relating the Australian landscape to national identity.
