"Tjukurrtjanu: Origins of Western Desert Art" celebrates the work of twenty of the original artists who began painting at Papunya forty years ago. The Papunya artists’ bold initial experiments, in committing ceremonial designs that are tjukurrtjanu (from the Dreaming) onto board, marked the beginning of a modern painting movement that would change the face of Australian art forever.

Drawing on the expertise of leading anthropologists, art historians and field officers, Tjukurrtjanu offers insightful perspectives on the artists and the iconography of their complex and intimate paintings – the first masterpieces of Western Desert art.
