The Grimwade Collection was bequeathed to the University of Melbourne in Sir Russell Grimwade's will of 1949 and presented to the university after the death of Lady Grimwade in 1972.
Russell Grimwade was a person of diverse interests, and the subject of botany held lifelong appeal to him. His activities in this area reflected his role as a patron and collector of art and books, a chemist, and author. This exhibition brings together works of diverse media, including paintings, watercolours, books, and furniture that highlights Russell Grimwade’s botanical interests.
