MUSEUM MONTHLY TALK - The Convict Painters

Next event date: Friday, 22 September 2023 | 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM


The convict artists were bound together more by social experience than art. On arrival, most had to survive horrendous conditions. But they were artists, and there was so much to record. September’s guest speaker is Robert Stevens, Chairman of the Victorian Branch of the Australiana Society and his special area is Convict Artists. In 2017 Robert received the Peter Walker Fine Art Writing Award for his article Elizabeth Hudspeth, an artist in Van Diemen's Land. Robert has spent 50 years researching and collecting convict art and personal histories. This presentation is an overview of his work.
