Building History: Drawings and prints of historic Pietermaritzburg buildings by Carola Brotherton

This exhibition from the Gallery’s permanent collection comprises pen & ink drawings and linoprints of a number of Victorian and Edwardian buildings in the centre of Pietermaritzburg. These were created by Carola Gordon (née Brotherton) in the 1960s when she was a student and teacher at the Department of Fine Art, University of Natal. Each building on display is juxtaposed with a photographic image of what was found at that street address in August 2015. Some buildings have been restored, some altered, and some have developed signs of deterioration. Two of the buildings have been demolished.
