Beautiful Soup catalogue (20 page pdf)
Our Beautiful Soup print, At dusk it glitters, features Eugene von Guérard’s Tower Hill (1855, in the collection of Warrnambool Art Gallery, Victoria). It also features Nina Youchkevitch in costume for Les Cent Baisers (photograph by Max Dupain, Home, 1937) gazing into a lake of rare and giant stars.
Tower Hill is a lake-filled maar volcano known as a nested caldera with a group of scoria cones that form central islands, located near Koroit in Victoria’s Western District, a site that supported a wonderful diversity of plant, bird and animal life.
