True Light and Shade: An Aboriginal Perspective of Joseph Lycett's Art

Book - True Light and Shade

Book Review: 'True Light and Shade' by Worimi man, Professor John Maynard, is filled with beautiful images by convict artist Joseph Lycett that powerfully capture in intimate detail Aboriginal life, a rare record of Aboriginal people within the vicinity of Newcastle and how they adapted to European settlement before cultural destruction impacted on these groups. John Maynard writes an engaging short biography of Lycett and his life in Australia and follows this with a detailed commentary on each of the 20 images in the album. [node:read-more:link]
