Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Julian Freeman for Cassone, 2 Feb. 2014
Informative, stimulating, telling as any accumulation of information in a bells-and-whistles book, and very much a ‘first’, Figure and Ground sidesteps the better-known oil paintings of British artist Keith Vaughan (1912–77) to draw deeply on the University of Aberystwyth’s collection of his photographs and works on paper, prints and drawings. Most of that holding has never been previously exhibited, published or formed the basis of any critical study.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review by Dermot McCaul, State Library of Victoria, 3 Sept. 2012
A fascinating period for Australian art and its reception overseas, this wonderfully detailed study examines some of the major mentors championing its cause in England, such as Sir Kenneth Clark, Bernard Smith and Bryan Robertson, Director of the Whitechapel Gallery in London. The distinctive vision of Australia created by a diverse group of artists far from home is still very much with us today, and this microscopic examination of the political, social and artistic influences of this flourishing period is both an eye opener and a page turner.
