Since 1937, many newspaper and journal articles have been written about Albert Namatjira and his art, and State Libraries throughout Australia and the National Library have in their biography collections extensive material relating to this artist. Further biographical material can also be found in the Libraries of the State Galleries and in the Library of the National Gallery of Australia.
Of the books written on Albert Namatjira, I would direct researchers to The Heritage of Namatjira: The Watercolourists of Central Australia, which has a fairly extensive list of 'Sources', 'Unpublished Sources', 'Catalogues' and 'Films'.
Following is a brief selection of books and catalogues relating to Albert Namatjira and his art, that I would suggest for further reading.
