The Johnston Collection

In 1957 pastoralist Herbert Shaw bequeathed to the Hamilton Shire Council an extraordinary collection of eighteenth-century decorative arts that he and his wife, May, had assembled over many years.  

This was the origins of the Hamilton Gallery we know today. This lecture will explore highlights of Hamilton Gallery’s rich holdings of eighteenth-century art, including important Meissen and Bow porcelain, outstanding German baroque silver and an exceptional tapestry to a design by Charles Le Brun.
