Étienne Nicolas Méhul (1763-1817), composer influential in the development of French opera. A physionotrace is an instrument designed to trace a person's profile, invented by a Frenchman named Gilles-Louis Chrétien in 178384.

Enabling the production of multiple and therefore cheap copies, the physionotrace represented a precursor to photography in making portraiture a mass phenomenon.

A view of the Mitta Mitta River, a tributary of the Murray, near its headwaters in the Victorian Alps. An aborigine is spear-fishing. The Austrian artist Eugene von Guérard (1811-1901) arrived in Australia in 1852 to try his fortune in the goldfields. While failing as a miner he made sketches of the fields, and found he could make a living as a painter. By the early 1860s von Guérard was recognised as the foremost landscape artist in the colonies and in 1870 he was appointed as the first Master of the School of Painting at the National Gallery of Victoria. He returned to Europe in 1882, lost his fortune in the Australian Bank Crash of 1893, and lived in poverty until his death in London in 1901. From 'The Melbourne Album Containing a Series of Views of Melbourne & Country Districts'.
