Curator Talk | Shearing the rams

Curator Talk | Shearing the rams

See iconic Australian colonial-era painting, Tom Roberts’ Shearing the rams, on display temporarily via the National Gallery of Victoria. 

Shearing the rams reflects an emerging Australian identity via the rural wool economy, and responds to the late 19th century’s nationalistic sentiment.

Enrich your Shearing the rams experience with an after-hours curator talk. Enjoy a glass of Juniper Estate wine and hear from the Gallery’s Curator of 19th Century Arts, Melissa Harpley. Tour the Gallery’s Historical Collection at your own pace thereafter.

Bookings essential, capacity limited.
