Art History: Heidelberg School: (1870 - 1900)

The Heidelberg school was the first major school of Australian art, beginning in the late 19th century and lasting about thirty years. It was based on aspects of French Impressionism but aspired to create a style that was authentically Australian. The movement got its named in 1891 by art critic Sidney Dickinson. He chose the name because many artists often found their subjects in the rural Heidelberg area outside of Melbourne. The school is remembered for being the first movement to accurately depict the Australian landscape.
