Gert Sellheim, a German-Australian artist, was one of the earliest designers commissioned by the Australian National Travel Association (ANTA) to produce designs for Australian travel posters. In this poster, ‘Corroboree Australia’, Sellheim incorporates and references the art and culture of the Aboriginal people of Australia. The design depicts the Arrente people of Central Australia, wearing painted ceremonial body decorations and headdress. This is a striking and modern design from 1934.
