"There is an air of mystery surrounding the British-born artist, John Glover, who emigrated to Tasmania in 1829 and spent the next twenty years until his death sketching and painting in relative isolation. It is through his art that we are able to learn something of the man, his life and his impression of the Australian landscape."
