An exhibition of 40 paintings and drawings drawn from various private and public collections, including the British Council Collection. A catalogue, with an introduction by A J L McDonnell, was published to accompany the show. No ISBN number.

After closing in Melbourne, the paintings were shown in four main provincial towns in Victoria: Ballarat, Bendigo, Castlemaine and Geelong. In order to show the paintings in all four towns in a short time, the collection was divided into two parts. In minutes of the Fine Art Advisory Committee report that ‘The Representative in Australia has been asked to prevent any such step being taken in the future without consulting the Committee, since the collection was devised as a whole and does not lend itself to division.’

The exhibition was also shown in the art galleries of Castlemaine, Bendifo, Ballarat and Geelong.
