Mimi ColliganISBN: 0522850197;
Book DescriptionMoving panorama and diorama pictures came to Australia and New Zealand during the gold rush of the 1850s and 1860s, when entrepreneurs brought great lengths of canvas from Britain and America depicting battles and journeys from England toIndia and Australia; local artists soon followed suit. This in-depth look at the Australian panorama industry illustrates the influence of British and American popular culture in Australia and New Zealand, and provides fresh insight into the largely ignored visual and cultural influences that helped form the colonial experience.
