In the Footsteps of von Guérard and Thomas Clark
Engage with the influential landscapes of artists Eugene von Guérard and Thomas Clark in an immersive journey through Western Victoria to understand their lives, perspectives and paintings.
Both artists arrived in Australia in 1852 and found a unique environment unlike any other country, ready and waiting to be captured and preserved in their detailed brushstrokes and stunning compositions.
Appreciate key works by these artists in regional galleries of Ballarat, Hamilton and Dunkeld, depicting the landscapes as they were over 150 years ago – from pastoral properties and panoramas, volcanic landscapes and idyllic rolling hills to goldrush digs, wild bushfires and glimpses of colonial life. Enjoy unprecedented access to private homesteads and personal art collections.
Discover the fascinating history of Western Victoria, from the diversity of the First Nations people to their interactions with European squatters, and enrich your understanding of Australian art in context with the guidance of expert tour leaders.
