Elegance in Exile: Portrait Drawings from Colonial Australia by Joanna Gilmour examines the conditions artists practiced their art in colonial Sydney & Hobart

A fine and vivid record of Australian colonial life, society and identity, Elegance in Exile published by the National Portrait Gallery at Canberra, profiles the pre-eminence of drawing and printmaking in the early years of the visual arts in Australia

The artists Richard Read senior, Thomas Bock, Thomas Griffiths Wainewright and Charles Rodius are recognized today for the portraits they created in the first half of the nineteenth century. Exiled to Australia as convicts, they produced some of the most elegant and significant Australian portraits of the period. The drawings, watercolours, sketches, prints and miniatures examined in Elegance in Exile encompass the stories of Indigenous leaders, governors, explorers, administrators and gentry, as well as colonists of less illustrious or ex-convict stock. – Requesting prices
