> DESCRIPTION

Colonial Women explores the work of ten artists active during the 1830s-1850s, a period of cultural and scientific innovation and expansion in Van Diemen’s Land under the patronage of Jane Franklin.
Louisa Anne Meredith, Mary Morton Allport and Theresa Walker regarded themselves as professional artists, while Susan Fereday and Ann Buckland combined drawing with scientific investigation and illustration. Elizabeth Princep and Elizabeth Haller had lithographs created form their sketches, whereas Anna Maria Nixon and Emma Haller simply drew for pleasure. Collectively, the work of these artists contributes to our understanding of life in colonial times.
