Aboriginal Artists of the Western Desert. A Biographical Dictionary

Roseville East, Craftsman House, 1994.

Large octavo, 237 pages with a map plus 32 pages of plates (24 in colour).

Colour pictorial papered boards slightly rubbed; an excellent copy.

'This unique and thoroughly researched dictionary contains profiles of over 500 Western Desert artists ... During the 1970s the Papunya Tula Artists were the best known group of Aboriginal artists but since then work from Yuendumu, Napperby, Mt Allen, Lajamanu, Ernabella, Utopia and Balgo Hills has also gained recognition. This dictionary includes listings not only of individual artists by family name but also annotates the artists as members of specific Aboriginal communities and identifies their Jukurrpa (Dreamings)'. A pioneering work, still of great relevance.
