  • "ABORIGINAL ART OF THE WESTERN DESERT" par Geoff BARDON. Editions Rigby Limited, Adelaide - Sydney - Melbourne - Brisbane - Perth. 1979. in-8, reliure toilée jaune sous jaquette illustrée en couleurs (état d'usage). 72 pages. Texte en anglais, illustré de 24 planches couleurs d'œuvres aborigènes accompagnées de la reproduction photographique noir & blanc de l'artiste ainsi que de croquis explicatifs. "Aboriginal Art of the Western Desert, as well as giving some fascinating insights into Aborigines and their legends, presents twenty-four of the best painting by twenty artists who are recognised leaders in this, for them, medium at Papunya - an Aboriginal settlement approximately 200 kilometres west of Alice Springs. Together with the glorious colour paintings are diagrams pointing out the salient features of each work and short biographies of the artists. The book is the culmination of the author's experiences as an art teacher at the settlement. In spite of their being unaccustomed to using board as a surface (sand and rock were their usual fabric) these friendly people, with Geoff Bardon's encouragement and supply of materials, determined that most of their spare time would be taken up in painting the stories of their 'Dreamings'. Always there when the artists wanted advice he eventually helped to form them into a company for the sale of their works - the Papunya Tula Artists Company - with the proceeds going to the artists concerned. Before the author left the settlement the company flourished, which gave him immense pleasure as well as the Aborigines." Ref LAR0070
