Drawing Sydney's Nature
Artist Colony draws from the TAL & Dai-ichi Life Derby collection comprising 745 drawings and watercolours.
The exhibition, featuring a showcase of 100 rich and evocative late 18th century natural history drawings, tells an intriguing story of obsession and the thirst for knowledge. It reveals the extraordinary artistic culture that emerged out Sydney's early harsh and unforgiving environment.
