  1. Australian Art – Early Modernism 1919-1939

  2. Australia felt the enormous impact of World War 1 –out of the 400,000 men who went to Europe to fight the war, 60,000 did not return. The war broke out in the declining years of the Heidelberg School. The war was a fundamental event in Australia’s history and in the formation of a national Consciousness.

  3. Women Artists and Modernism During this period, women artists came to the fore. As a result of the two world wars, the absence of a large portion of the male population and subsequent extension of responsibilities, women gained an independence and confidence that they carried into the art world, becoming more experimental and adapting to new styles, techniques and materials. Women artists played a significant role in the development of Australian modernism. The increase in the recognition and activities of women artists was a reflection of the growing independence and emancipation of women. Female artists travelled and studied overseas. Many female artists chose not to marry because of the possibility of conflict between family life and their art studies.
