A Rothschild prayer book; an Italian bronze casket by Antico; a lavishly illustrated Carnival chronicle from sixteenth-century Germany; an altarpiece by the famous Flemish painter Pieter Brueghel the Younger—much of the artwork in this book, held by Australian collections, is essentially unknown beyond the continent, and so this collection of  essays will surprise even specialists. The authors showcase these extraordinary objects to their full potential, revealing a wide range of contemporary art and historical research.
 
 
Review Quotes
Elizabeth J. Moodey, Vanderbilt University
Antipodean Early Modern focuses on underpublished works of art, as well as celebrated ones, giving them greater exposure to scholars and museum-goers. The variety of methodologies, aims and results points to the richness of interpretation inspired by the collections under consideration.” 
Erin Griffey, University of Auckland
“The innovation here is two-fold: bringing together a range of important manuscripts and artworks in Australian collections to an international audience to invite more scholarly attention and providing a wealth of current scholarly insights on these works. A timely, illuminating collection of essays, which combines readability and rigour for scholarly audiences as well as students."
