Denholm, M, In the Vineyard of Art: The Story of Art and Tasmania, A History, Carlton Street Press, Lenah Valley, Tasmania, pp. 256. ISBN 9780975168417 (2013) [Authored Other Book]


This six-volume history cells the story of art in the history of Tasmania. It is a history of art made in Tasmania, or about Tasmania, by people who have been born in or lived or travelled to Tasmania, or who are simply intrigued by some aspect about Tasmania, from Aboriginal art and the art of the early European explorers to art made at the beginning of the twenty-first century. This volume covers art made in Tasmania up to the 1960s. Volume two continues this story, covering art made in Tasmania from the 1960s. Volume three looks at printmaking, sculpture and photography that have been created in Tasmania. Volume four, 'Expatriates and Visitors', includes artists who have left Tasmania to make art elsewhere, artists who have visited Tasmania to make art there, and artists generally living outside this state who have made art that refers to Tasmania and aspects of its history in any way. The fifth volume of this history mainly examines the Museum of Old and New Art while volume six discusses such art museums as the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery chat are briefly mentioned in this volume.
