This talk will introduce the portrait paintings of the Peter O’Callaghan QC Gallery at the Victorian Bar. While this collection of past and present barristers is important to Victorian legal history, it is also a demonstration of movements in Australian art history. It will be shown how this small but important collection displays interesting examples of the traditional and conservative, as well as the modern and contemporary.
