The works range from early 18th and 19th century portraits, to contemporary portraits and scenes of Melbourne and Victoria. Works of some of our most celebrated and talented Australian artists are in the collection and showcased in this book: Eug ne von Gu rard, John Glover, Frederick McCubbin, Albert Tucker, Ian Fairweather, Lina Bryans, Jan Senbergs, Juan Davila and Howard Arkley to name a few.
