The Spirit Of The Plains

1919/1920s. Aquatint and etching, annotated “B”, titled and dated in pencil in lower margin, 17.3 x 35.4cm. Slight foxing, cockling. Framed.

Similar to copy held in AGNSW, with a lighter impression.

Sydney Long’s mystical work “evokes a distant, dreamlike and identifiably Australian landscape, featuring the brolga, a wetland bird found in northern Australia and well known for its elaborate mating dance…one of the most rhythmical and haunting images in 19th century Australian art.” It is considered to be one of the most important Australian images in the Art Nouveau style.
