his six-volume history tells 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 looks at printmaking, sculpture and photography 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 as well as other matters. Entries on such printmakers as Lolo Burrows, Betsy Gamble, Bea Maddock, who died in 2016, Yvonne Rees-Pagh, Udo Sellbach and Helen Wright, and sculptors such as Ewa Pachucka and John Robertson Tranthim-Fryer, were included in volume two of this history and, in John Robertson Tranthim-Fryer's case, in volume one of this history.
