With Country in Mind 
Hermannsburg Watercolours from the Ebes Collection 

A most unusual combination: in 1934 a young Arrernte man at Hermannsburg Mission sees an exhibition of water colour paintings by Victorian artists Rex Battarbee and John Gardner. Inspired he asks Battarbee to teach him, and subsequently he becomes Australia’s most famous artists: Albert Namatjira.

Now known as the Hermannsburg School, successive generations have continued with the tradition of water colour painting which brought central Australian landscapes to the attention of mainstream Australia.

This exhibition returns to its beginnings, to Albert Namatjira, his mentor and patron, Rex Battarbee, and the first generation of painters they inspired.
