Bill Bolton’s Vision – 60 Years On
The 60th anniversary exhibition of the Lionel Lindsay Gallery and Library Collection, 1959-2019. The Lindsay Collection housed at Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery was founded by W.R.F. Bolton MBE, a visionary Toowoomba businessman and collector. He named it to honour the artist and writer Sir Lionel Lindsay. For Bolton, the collection would represent Australia from the first European use of that name in the 1600s to the Second World War. The exhibition showcases many treasures from the collection, such as rare books and maps, oil paintings by Arthur Streeton and Frederick McCubbin, watercolours by Norman Lindsay and prints by Lionel Lindsay.
