Abstract

The article examines the bark paintings of the most primitive Australian aboriginal language group, the Kuninjku. It describes the continuity of the art, art practice and its enormous change and innovation over the years. It describes the connection of remote aboriginal modernism on western modernism, which is the inspiration for modern abstract painters.
