These inspiring talks are fundraising events for Geelong Gallery and begin at 10:15am with coffee, tea and scones in the Gallery, before an illustrated lecture at 11.00am at the High Ground, Wurdi Youang, Geelong Library and Heritage Centre.

For centuries the tool of queens, emperors, statesmen and dictators, portraits offer the ultimate in image control.

Join art historian and author, Dr Julie Cotter, as she journeys through eras, continents and regimes to examine the extraordinary stories of Portraits Destroyed in her latest book.
