Tom Roberts Shearing the rams 1890 (detail). Oil on canvas on composition board, 122.4 x 183.3 cm; 170 x 230.4 x 9.5 cm (framed). National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Felton Bequest, 1932.
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.
