Spotlight: Unknown faces

Take a tour of some mysterious portraits

Several portraits in the Gallery’s collection are of unknown sitters – people lost to history, but whose appearances are preserved in paintings that are several hundred years old.

Join Josephine Touma for a look some mysterious portraits from the Renaissance onwards, and discover how portraits both reveal and conceal a person’s ‘true’ identity.

The talk will be Auslan interpreted for deaf and hearing-impaired visitors.
