Event Overview: NEW Art Around the Library - Miniatures.
The State Library Pictures collections are a window into the stories behind all sorts of Australians and a surprisingly wide variety of artistic forms are represented in the collection.
In this video conference we examine the genre of Miniature portrait painting and in particular the Portrait of an unidentified man on board a ship, 1842. This will be the inspiration for an instructional workshop session using drawing and colour rendering materials and techniques.
