Sydney Long

The Spirit of the Land

Sydney Long (1871–1955) was Australia's foremost Art Nouveau painter and a major Symbolist. He created haunting images of the Australian landscape with decorative, poetic, musical qualities. He broke new ground by populating the landscape with nymphs and fauns, and the sinuous, graceful forms of trees and birds, seeking to convey the weird mystery of the Australian bush.

This publication also features the delightful landscapes and cityscapes painted by Long in Australia and England, distinguished by his sensuous and elegant approach. A selection of his prints attests to Long's place as a leading painter-etcher of the 1920s and 1930s.

The Spirit of the Land, the first comprehensive survey of Sydney Long's life and work to be published in more than 30 years, provides new research and a fresh appreciation of one of Australia's great artists.
