Transforming boredom into delight at the gallery
  • Imagine This! by Anne Gray. Bonamy Press, $20.

Amongst older Australians, Frederick McCubbin (1855-1917) is one of Australia's most popular artists. He is the artist of the Australian colonial narrative - heroic pioneers, children lost in the bush, bush burials, swagmen down of their luck, and the celebration of the beauty of the Australian bush. He is also one of the few artists of his generation who got better as a painter as he got older with a lighter palette and freer compositions emerging in his later work.
