Emily Kame Kngwarreye | Author: Emily Kame Kngwarreye

Emily Kame Kngwarreye (or Emily Kam Ngwarray) (1910 – 3 September 1996) was an Aboriginal Australian artist from the Utopia community in the Northern Territory. She is one of the most prominent and successful artists in the history of contemporary Indigenous Australian art.

A new series of monographs on Australian female artists, selected with series editor Natalie King, curator and Enterprise Professor at the Victorian College of the Arts. These books are compact yet perfectly formed. They comprise 96 pages of the artist's favourite works - designed for optimum visual impact and to reach anyone who is inspired by art and beauty.

The extra frisson for these titles comes in the introduction(Introduction by: Colm Toibin). For each monograph, one luminary from another field will write a personal, powerful essay of 1200 words (Edited by: Natalie King). It could be an ode to one particular painting; it could be a parallel narrative inspired by themes in the artist's work.
