National Library - Life and Death: Dorothy English Paty's Newcastle Sketchbooks

You are here

Wednesday, 28 June 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Members may be interested in this forthcoming talk at the National Library. The Library holds the works of Dorothy English Paty, one of Australia's best early natural historians. In the last years of her brief life she filled two exceptional sketchbooks with watercolours of plants and wildflowers of the Newcastle district. Treasures Curator Nat Williams examines the circumstances around the production of these memorable works, immersing you in Paty's now distant world.
