Tom Roberts by Virginia Spate( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1985 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He was one of the first Australian painters to attempt to develop a distinctively Australian style of painting. In this he was clearly influenced by European art of his day, having travelled and studied in England and Europe. But always he modified techniques to suit the Australian scene. In particular, Roberts was impressed by the plein airists and by Whistler's suggestive rather than precisely descriptive, painting style. And, even though he did not use all the techniques of the French impressionists, he did heighten colour to represent his impressions of light. But basically, Roberts was a realist, and his best paintings are realist representations of his subject."--Jacket

This publication accompanies the exhibition Tom Roberts at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra and discusses Tom Roberts's life and work and provides details on individual iconic works by Roberts from around Australia. The essays explore among other things Roberts relations with other artists, in particular McCubbin and Streeton who had very different places in his life and art. They also look at the seminal influence of Whistler, Manet and Velasquez on his work -- as well as artists such as Bastien Lepage and Courbet. They also look at his preference for pink tones in his early work and pastel blue and green in his later work. Importantly, this publication includes Roberts's highly popular national narratives such as Shearing the rams 1888-90, A break away! 1891, The golden fleece 1894 and Bailed up 1895. It includes eight of Roberts's panel portraits, 'Familiar faces and figures' from the late 1890s. And shows Roberts's mastery of the art of pastel portraiture with a group of his pastels from this period
