  52. COLLIGAN MIMI Canvas Documentaries.  Panoramic Entertainments in Nineteenth-Century Australia and New Zealand illus. with pub. Melbourne University Press 2002 1st. ed. d/w. cr.4to. oblong pp.268. Long before cinema was invented, people went to picture shows. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Britain. Europe and America they were treated to dramatic pictorial spectacles. Audiences might be encircled by vast 360-degree canvases, or seated before continuous images drawn across a proscenium, or gathered in amusement parks to watch painted 3-D structures come `alive' with the explosion of fireworks overhead. The sense of realism was enhanced by back-lighting, running commentaries and props such as real sand and trees. These spectacular representations of scenery, current events or recent battles abroad were indeed documentaries on canvas, the first travelogues. The phenomenon of complex circular panoramas and dioramas took root in Australia and New Zealand in the 1850s. They drew enthusiastic crowds, brought good work for local artists, and propagated the glories of empire in all the capital cities they toured. Fine copy.   Price: $50.00
