Bernard Smith (1916-2011) was unquestionably one of Australia's greatest humanist scholars and its finest art historian. His European Vision and the South Pacific, 1768-1850 (1960) was a foundational text of post-colonialism, and in Australian Painting (1962) he set out the definitive history of Australian art to that time. Antipodean Perspective: The Selected Writings of Bernard Smith presents twenty-six art historians, curators, artists and critics, from Australia and overseas, who have chosen a text from Smith's work and sought to explain its personal and broad significance. Their selections reveal Smith's extraordinary range as a scholar, his profound grasp of this nation's past, and the way his ideas have maintained their relevance as we face our future.
