Drop-by Drawing with Lily Mae Martin

Visual artist Lily Mae Martin steps through her approach to sketching inside NGV’s 19th Century European Paintings Gallery. She takes inspiration from the life-size marble sculpture Musidora, 1878 by Marshall Wood. This striking centrepiece of the gallery was a mythological ancient Greek goddess who inspired all forms of literature and the arts.
