The National Gallery is promoting their next exhibition: Robert Dowling: Tasmanian son of Empire.

Robert Dowling was Australia’s first major colonial-trained professional artist. Within Australian art historical terms, this was a milestone of great significance. It may seem surprising, then, that the National Gallery of Australia travelling exhibition Robert Dowling: Tasmanian son of Empire is the first retrospective of the artist’s comprehensive body of work. This exhibition shows his portraits, including his portraits of pastoralists and their properties, portraits and compositions of Indigenous people, biblical subjects, social history subjects and his Oriental subjects.

Nothing’s going to be the greatest hits of the musee d’orsay but this sounds like a solid Sunday morning.

Whenever I see his name I want to add Jr at the end.

The link on “promoting” is to the photo not the NGA.
