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.
