Drawn from the Benalla Art Gallery Collection, this exhibition explores the idea of works of art as studies of particular subjects, primarily through portraiture in this case, and also as decorative ornaments.
Ornament and Subject features paintings, photography and prints from the 19th century to the present day with a special focus on contemporary female artists.
