About Arthur Streeton - Australian Landscape Painter includes all the links to information and images which I could find online last week and I have to say I'm very impressed. It only goes to remind me what a northern hemisphere view of art history we seen to have at times.

- This is an absolutely brilliant resource - the Australian Impressionism Education Resource created by the National Gallery of Victoria. Click on the submenu on the Insights page to find out a lot more about Australian Impressionism. The National themes page in particular highlights how the development of Australian painting was closely linked to the development of strong themes within Australian life
- I found this page, created by the National Government, on The Heidelberg School: Sydney, its beaches, the harbour and the Hawkesbury to be particularly helpful in understanding more about the context of Australian landscape painting. The Heidelberg School was a group of impressionist painters who included Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Frederick McCubbin and Charles Conder.
Golden Summer, Eaglemont is one of the best-known paintings of the Heidelberg School and has long been recognised as an Australian masterpiece.
