A talk on Conrad Martens, the Exmouth artists who sailed with Charles Darwin on the HMS Beagle and who become one of Australia’s greatest painters, will take place at Exmouth Library (coincidentally the site of Conrad’s former home – Elm Cottage) on Wednesday, March 11.
Conrad joined the Beagle in Montevideo after the artist-in-residence became unwell. After travelling around Cape Horn he left the Beagle, meeting up with Darwin later in Sydney.
The talk will focus on Conrad’s life and work and offer a chance to peruse the collection of his work.
Contact Exmouth Library on 01395 272677 for more details.
