This is the first major exhibition to tell the story of Australian Tonalism; a movement championed by the influential and often controversial painter Max Meldrum, which reached its peak during the inter-war period. Developed by the Art Gallery of South Australia the exhibition includes work by Clarice Beckett, Colin Colahan, Percy Leason, Polly Hurry and John Farmer. Paintings drawn from the Gallery’s own holdings from this period will also be included.
