In this talk we will look at how colonial artists depicted the colony’s social life: from robust comic humour, to the illustrated popular press to serious fine art. Explore how illustrations of having fun – sometimes too much fun complete with potential pitfalls - helped create communities by shaping how the how colonists saw themselves.
Richard Neville has published widely on colonial art and society, working extensively with the State Library of NSWs renowned Australian research collections as the Mitchell Librarian and Director, Engagement.
