Centenary of the foundation of the the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society, 1918-2018
The Twenty Melbourne Painters Society is one of Australia’s oldest arts organisations and occupies a unique position in Australian art. Many distinguished artists have been members of the group and contributed to its colourful history. The society maintains a strong commitment to the traditions of realist and impressionist painting.
In celebration of 100 years of activity, our front page features a work by founding Society member and leading Australian impressionist painter, Clara Southern, The Road to Warrandyte, circa 1905-1910. Unknown photographer. Private collection.
