Let’s take a journey “down under” this week with some of the leading Australian artists as our guides: from European adventurers seeking new opportunities to to the incomparable expressions of the native Aborigines.
Viennese Eugene von Guerard (1811-1901) was already an accomplished painter (trained in Germany and Italy) when he decided to seek his fortune in the gold fields of Victoria in 1852. He was unsuccessful but established himself as a popular landscapist, traveling into the wilderness areas of his adopted country to immortalize natural wonders like Mount Kosciuzko, the highest mainland peak of Australia.
