The wandering artist: Augustus Earle's travels around the world 1920-29

The Wandering Artist featured the work of the talented, gregarious, adventurous Augustus Earle - now widely accepted as the first independent professional artist to visit each of the five continents in search of new and exotic subjects. The exhibition portrayed colonial Sydney as a vibrant, multicultural port of Pacific commerce, a colourful and cosmopolitan city with a history of trade, voyaging and exchange that has defined its place in the world.
