Featuring paintings, sculpture, photographs, and decorative arts, Australian Symbolism: The Art of Dreams is the only book on this subject and provides a fresh context for the work of some of the most well‐known Australian artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It investigates two main streams of Symbolist art: those artists – such as Rupert Bunny, Bernard Hall, George Lambert, Arthur Loureiro, and Bertram Mackennal – who trained or worked overseas and drew directly from European Symbolist genres; and those working here – such as Charles Conder, Sydney Long, Arthur Streeton, and Tom Roberts and – who defined a local experience.
