Johann Joseph Eugen Von Guerard (1811-1901) Australia

Biographical Information

Born in Austria in 1812, Von Guerard arrived in Australia in 1853. He became the first master of the school of the National Gallery of Victoria. A traditional and conservative painter, he believed that an artist's job was to depict as detailed and complete a copy of a scene as was possible. For this reason a number of his sketches of the Ballarat goldfields are now valuable historical records. Von Guerard returned to Europe in 1881. His works are represented in most major state collections. He died in 1901. Edit or add to this biography
