Short talks: portraiture and landscape

A different work in the Gallery's collection each week

The annual Archibald, Wynne and Sulman Prize competitions inevitably lead to discussion and debate about portraiture and landscape painting.

In this series of talks, Gallery staff discuss works from the collection, on display in other parts of the Gallery, which uphold or subvert traditional definitions of these genres.

Wednesdays 5.30pm
24 April - 29 May 2013


Duration 30 minutes
Location: Information desk
