The Enigmatic Mr Strange
Printer Friendly Version

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 Enigmatic Mr Strange, Creating a Past: The life and art of Frederick Strange c. 1807-1873 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.
