Country in Mind 
Hermannsburg Watercolours from the Ebes Collection 

A most unusual combination: Aboriginal perspective on traditional country in the western tradition of water colour painting.
What is now known as the Hermannsburg School, began in the 1930s with the paintings by Albert Namatjira at Hermannsburg Mission (Ntaria). 
Successive generations have carried on the tradition presenting an intriguing view of the West Macdonnell Ranges and Western Aranda country as showcased in this exhibition.

Drawn exclusively from the Ebes Collection, the exhibitions features works by Albert Namatjira (1902-1959), his mentor Rex Battarbee, his sons Ewald, Enos, Oscar, Keith, Otto Otto Pareroultja, Wenton Rubuntja, and others .
