If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
John Glover is Australia's most distinguished early colonial artist and the only nineteenth-century painter to have had a successful career in Europe before migrating. He arrived from Britain to convict Tasmania in 1831 aged 64. Why did he, in old age, come to Australia and paint his most brilliant landscapes here?
Ron Radford addresses these questions and examines Glover's painting and farming at his Patterdale estate in northern Tasmania. He also records the recent saving of Glover's 200-year-old Patterdale farmhouse and the re-creation of his studio and garden.
Dr Radford stresses that Glover created Australia's first great landscape canvases, many poignantly depicting the original Palawa inhabitants.
