Abstract

Ar(tour) In contextualising current eclectic arts practices, it is essential to revisit the Holbrook family's influence on landscape art emerging from the Australian impressionist period of 1889, through to the offshoot of the 1962 Annandale Imitation Realists that became known as the Mouse Jacket Expressionists. Noddy Holbrook himself was a key figure in this initially anti-American movement, but increasingly his grandmother, Dorothy, was retrospectively reinstated in the lexicon of the Mentone en plein air painters. A century ahead of her rightful time, we begin to recognise the Holbrook art dynasty's quiet influence on painting, printmaking, ship-building, ceramics, wire-works, circus, underwater electronics, and taking the pastoral landscape tradition into a contemporary performance art milieu.
