A discerning eye: selections from the Rex Nan Kivell Collection

The collection of Sir Rex Nan Kivell (1898 - 1977), now in the National Library of Australia, is one of the finest collections of Australasian and Pacific history in the world and a vital part of Australia’s cultural heritage. It is a remarkable and comprehensive visual record of the European conquest of Australasia and the Pacific region in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Selected key items from this fine collection of original oil and gouache paintings, lithographs, engravings, watercolours, manuscripts, maps, books and other associated items were displayed in this exhibition.
