EUGENE VON GUÉRARD BOOK LAUNCH: TOM DARRAGH AND RUTH PULLIN IN CONVERSATION

Sat 21 Apr

For a period of nine years, between 1876 and 1885, landscape painter and founding curator of the National Gallery of Victoria Eugen von Guérard (1811–1901) corresponded with his friend and fellow-German Julius von Haast (1822–1887), geologist and founder of the Canterbury Museum in Christchurch.

These letters, written by one of Australia’s greatest landscape painters, an inveterate collector and the dedicated inaugural custodian of the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria, to his good friend and colleague, a distinguished and pioneering geologist, writer and museum director, shed new light on the personal and professional lives of both men and their institutions.
