Beyond the purposes of illustration, illusion, and decoration, pictorial art assumes an aspirational purpose. Either it affirms a moral principle, consistent with an ideological program, or it provokes an uninhibited sensory and emotional response. In the latter case, art informs the self about itself, rather than about the social order and its stock identities (gendered, racial, ethnic, economic,...

In an era when a quick internet search yields innumerable images from across the world, it’s difficult to imagine being entirely reliant on verbal or literary descriptions of those images. Vincent van Gogh alluded to this difficulty when writing to his sister, Willemien, about his first encounter with...

In Wilhelmine Germany (1888–1918), art historians and critics often expanded the geographical and chronological parameters of impressionism beyond the confines of late nineteenth-century France. According to this longer history propagated in German circles, impressionism could include the works of Titian, Frans Hals, and Diego Velázquez, as well as ancient Roman murals and Chinese...

In 1891 Tom Roberts was standing on the land of the Bangerang people of the Yorta Yorta Nation as he drew in pencil the preliminary outline of a horse and stockrider trying to slow the desperate stampede of sheep toward water. “Bangerang” has various spellings in English, and this is the version used by the Yorta Yorta National Aboriginal Corporation. The Bangerang people occupied lands in Victoria and New South Wales that included the region known as Corowa since European settlement. Roberts was then a guest of the settler-colonist Henry Hay at Collendina Station in the Riverina district of New South Wales. Half a century before, in 1841, the property had been granted by the Crown as a pastoral...
