MELBOURNE.- The National Gallery of Victoria opened Eugene von Guérard: Nature Revealed, a superb exhibition which takes an in depth look, for the first time in over 30 years, at one of Australia’s most renowned and eminent landscape artists, Eugene von Guérard (1811-1901). Dr Gerard Vaughan, Director, NGV said: “Eugene von Guérard: Nature Revealed is a star feature of the NGV’s 150th anniversary year and it’s a great honour to have present von Guérard’s great, great granddaughter, Dr Harriet Buckley, who resides in the UK. “On loan from the von Guérard family and on display for the very first time are two sketchbooks which document the Sicilian expedition von Guérard and father Bernard von Guérard (1771–1836) made in 1834. One sketchbook is perhaps von Guérard’s earliest, and the second sketchbook belonged to his artist-father, Bernard von Guérard.
