Sydney : Bay Books, 1988. Quarto, boards in dustjacket (with illustration of Arthur Boyd), light handling wear, pp. 204, illustrated. Aboriginal art text by Judith Ryan.

“Part 1 of the book covers images in religion – paintings with explicit religious reference, images that have their origin in religion, even though the artist may in fact be protesting against institutionalized religion. Part 2 covers three ‘islands of reflection’ – one for Arthur Boyd, one for Leonard French, and one for Aboriginal painters.” – from the introduction.

Presentation copy for the art curator Daniel Thomas, with a lengthy, personal signed inscription from Rosemary Crumlin.

From the library of art curator and author David Thomas, former Keeper of Pictorial Collections, National Library of Australia, and Director of the Newcastle City Art Gallery, Australian Gallery Directors Council, Art Gallery of South Australia, Carrick Hill, Adelaide, and Bendigo Art Gallery.
