GEORGIANA McCRAE: Her Life in Miniatures with Caroline Clemente

Thursday 30 Sep 2010, 10:15 AM – 11:45 AM

Georgiana McCrae was a fully trained miniature portraitist, banned by her husband’s family from practising professionally. Many of her surviving works will be illustrated in this talk.

They reflect her remarkable story which opens in her father’s ducal family, her move to London with her husband and concludes with her pioneering life in early Melbourne.

Catherine Clemente is author of Australian Watercolours in the National Gallery of Victoria 1802-1926, and the ‘Catalogue of Plates’ for Brenda Niall’s biography of Georgiana McCrae.
