Art and Suburbia: A world art book

By Chris McAuliffe and Sasha Grishen

The `silent suburbs’ emptied W.H. Auden’s mind, but Chris McAuliffe finds much to marvel at in this book which juxtaposes images of suburbia in works from over 50 Australian artists with quotes from writers, humorists and commentators reflecting on the Australian suburb. The art represented ranges from turn of the century works by Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin, to Clarice Beckett’s modernist 1930s streets and the post-war satire of John Brack, to today’s artists.
