Imaging the World by Dr Henry R Lew and Diamonds and Stones in an Era of Gold by Dr Brian Collopy AM
Imaging the World
Imaging the World introduces a never previously described scientific form of art connoisseurship which, through the work of Frans Hals, Edouard Manet, Alfred Munnings, Derwent Lees and other selected artists, explains how to amalgamate a knowledge of “art history and artistic techniques” with an appreciation of the “neurophysiological engineering of human vision”.
Diamonds and Stones in an Era of Gold
The story is set in Melbourne in the gold rush years of the late 19th century, when the city was growing rapidly due to the gold flowing from the diggings at Ballarat and Bendigo.
