Artistic influences for Tan's "The Lost Thing"

viewed 435 times

Shaun Tan has written about his wide range of artistic influences. The influence of Jeffery Smart's 1962 painting, Cahill Expressway, is clearly evident in The Lost Thing's cover (and a glimpse of a similar painting is seen on the wall of the Shaun's family's living room in "The Lost Thing"). Tan similarly references the well-known 1955 painting by John Brack, Collins Street. The links provided below are to view the works of these important influences: Jeffery Smart, Edward Hopper and John Brack.
