The Art Bulletin of Victoria 1967–68 features an array of absorbing articles discussing various works in the NGV’s collection. Feature essays include: an exploration by Allan McEvey about John Gould’s innate ability to capture birds in lithographs such as Warbling grass parakeet; an essay by Bernard Smith about the NGV’s spectacular Géricault painting Entombment; a text by Rex Ebbott that discusses seventeenth-century Dutch glass; and a historical essay by James Mollison about the Ballarat Art Gallery.

This edition also comprises writings about recent NGV acquisitions including The Adoration of the Magi by Sandro Botticelli and Georges Gougenot by J. B. Pigalle.

We hope you will enjoy reading these articles, which have been crafted with significant research and scholarship.
