‘LJ Harvey and His Times’ celebrates the return to Queensland of a large and important collection of material relating to Harvey’s career. The collection was inherited by Harvey’s daughter, Elsie, and donated to the Gallery by Harvey’s twin grandsons, the Reverends David and Bruce Harvey Noble of Houston, Texas. The gift will be displayed with paintings and sculptures of the period from the Gallery’s Collection.
