Australian sketchbook exhibition audio tour

The State Library’s Australian sketchbook: Colonial life and the art of ST Gill exhibition showcases a lifetime of work by Australia’s most popular colonial artist.

Listen as curator Professor Sasha Grishin provides an introduction to the exhibition and offers expert insights into four distinctive Gill artworks, each a window onto the world of 19th-century Melbourne.

After you've enjoyed the exhibition, why not use the map to take a walk to these locations to compare ST Gill's Melbourne with the scenes you see today.
