The Bessant Bequest

Bessant exhibition

On display at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery at Royal Park, from 26 August 2017 to 4 February 2018 

The Bessant Collection was bequeathed to QVMAG in 2008 by Toni and Peter Bessant. The antique dealers and passionate collectors were particularly interested in Tasmanian furniture.

This exhibition features items including Campbell's pottery, works on paper and exquisitely crafted Tasmanian timber.
