THOMAS BOCK: CONVICT ENGRAVER, SOCIETY PORTRAITIST. Diane Dunbar et al. Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, Launceston, 1991. Organized and published in association with Australian National Gallery, Canberra. 116 pp. with 52 ills. (17 col.). 27 x 20 cm. LC 92-180305 ISBN 0642158797 In English.
Accompanying an exhibition of more than 100 crayon, watercolor and oil portraits, a small selection of daguerreotypes, and numerous engravings for commercial stationery, bank notes and visiting cards, this catalogue traces the unusual career of English-born artist Bock (ca. 1793-1855), an accomplished engraver who in 1823 was banished to a penal colony in Tasmania, eventually establishing himself as the territory's leading artist. Nine detailed essays discuss Bock's life and diverse achievements, his portraits of prosperous British colonists and of Tasmania's aboriginal peoples, and technical and conservation issues related to his oeuvre.
