National Library of Australia: Pictures Catalogue

"This catalogue contains descriptions of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and three–dimensional objects held in the Pictures Collection of the National Library of Australia. The emphasis is on Australian material, with some material relating to New Zealand, Antarctica, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific. The main time period covered is late eighteenth century to the present day. The Collection includes thousands of portraits of significant Australians.

The Pictures Collection contains approximately 45,000 paintings and over 600,000 photographs; most of this material has been catalogued with individual descriptions or collection summaries. All these descriptions and summaries can be searched on this database.

Of the material that has been catalogued, more than 80,000 items have been digitised. These images are available through this catalogue, for research and study purposes and publication. More online images are added regularly."
