Australian Impressionists in France provides a new perspective on one of the best-known and loved periods in Australian art. It reveals for the first time the extent of Australian artists’ participation in the global movement of Impressionism, and examines the work of leading Australian Impressionists in France, including John Russell, E. Phillips Fox and Charles Conder. Elena Taylor, Curator of Australian Art, NGV, offers new insights into the lives of the many Australian artists in France and their friendships with artists from around the world. In this fascinating account, Australian art emerges as more diverse than previously thought; focused outwards as well as inwards, global as well as national. Many previously unknown works are reproduced in stunning full colour alongside some of the most renowned paintings of this era.

Includes works of Australian women painters such as Margaret Preston, Bessie Davidson, Ethel Carrick Fox, Hilda Rix Nicholas, Kathleen O’Connor and others.
