The collection features more than 200 artworks and it includes oil paintings, watercolour paintings and sketches – collectively known as “China coast paintings” – as well as block-prints and photographs. In addition to portraying the historical development of Macau over the course of the 18th and 19th centuries, the collection also represents the history of art reproduction techniques, from copperplate engraving through lithography to photography. The HKBU Library received this collection from Mr. Brian Cuthberston in 2005. The Derwent Collection was named after the river on which Mr. Cuthberston was born and grew up in Hobart, Tasmania.
