This eagerly awaited publication celebrates the artistic career of one of Australia’s most important printmakers of the twentieth century, Jessie Traill.
Embracing the medium of etching in the early 1900s, Jessie Traill forged a radical path for printmaking in Australia through the duality of her vision. Depicting the beauty of the natural environment alongside dynamic images of industry, her lyrical response showed a profound understanding of the dilemma which requires nature to be sacrificed in order for the modern world to progress.
