Title: Australian Art


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 Australias 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.
