The Enigmatic Mr Strange

On display at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery at Royal Park, from 19 June to 12 November 2016.

Some of the earliest depictions of Launceston by a former convict, originally trained as a portrait and house painter in England, have been brought together at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery at Royal Park.

The exhibition contains a number of works not seen before. The exhibition features some of the most important images of Launceston and the environs from the early 1840s to the early 1860s.

These include public buildings, homesteads, churches, the Tamar River, Cataract Gorge and large views of the city.
