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.
To coincide with the Richard Avedon People exhibition, the Potter will host a free screening of the widely acclaimed documentary Richard Avedon: Darkness and Light.
The film will be screened at 2pm each day from Friday 27 February to Sunday 1 March 2015.
Tuesday to Friday 10am to 5pm
Saturday and Sunday 12 noon to 5pm
