The Sir Russell and Lady Grimwade Bequest is an extensive collection of cultural material comprising artworks, photographs, decorative arts, furniture, rare books, historical documents and other memorabilia, that provides a perspective on the visual history of Australia from the time of European discovery to the 1950s.
The dominant themes of the collection reflect Sir Russell Grimwade’s desire to document the exploration, settlement and development of Australia as a nation, and the growth of Melbourne as a city. In addition to a number of works on paper by nineteenth century lithographers and engravers, works by the photographer Charles Nettleton (1826 – 1902) are included in this exhibition.
