CJ19 Watercolour by Basel Rantji
Item # CJ19
Description A Hermansburg School Watercolour by ‘Basel Rantji’ (1936-1999) of the McDonnell Ranges of central Australia. In 1934 a Western Arrernte Aboriginal man by the name of Albert Namatjira inspired a school of artists which became known as the ‘Hermannsburg School’ with his paintings of his tribal lands. This was a major change in direction for Aboriginal Art which previously focused on symbols etc. The movement is characterised by watercolours of western-style landscapes that depict the striking colours of the Australian outback .
