Prints from the colonial period were the most common way of letting a wider world know about the new Australian colony. Consequently major artists such as Nicholas Chevalier, S.T. Gill and Eugene Von Gurard were called upon to produce prints depicting colonial Australia.
This exhibition features colonial prints from the Gallery’s permanent collection and coincides with the display of colonial paintings by Thomas Clark.
