Panoramic Views

 

26 September 2015 - 17 January 2016

Salon Gallery

Panoramic ViewsPanoramas, typically large and alive with detail, fascinate us. They invite careful examination. Our attention is drawn by an entire vista of numerous features, not by a single focal point.

The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery's collection of panoramas spans three centuries, and Panoramic Views features just a sample of the breath of work which could have been shown.

The work in this exhibition has been selected from TMAG's 19th century colonial watercolours and drawings collection, which is an extremely significant and extensive one. Featured are stunning panoramas of Tasmania and places further afield, by artists including Eugene von Guerard,Thomas J Lempriere, Louisa Anne Meredith, Augustus Earle and F G Simpkinson De Wesselow.
