Abstract

By performing a few imaginative leaps between two nineteenth-century contact zones, Paris and Yackandandah (in Victoria, Australia), this essay traces correspondences between Charles Baudelaire's ideas and the ink drawings of the Kwat Kwat sketcher of manners, Yackaduna, also recorded as Warra-euea and Tommy Barnes, but known to posterity as Tommy McRae.
