The Stuartholme-Behan Collection of Australian Art, The University of Queensland

15 May – 12 September 2010

The name of The Stuartholme-Behan Collection celebrates both the Stuartholme School, where the Collection was initially housed, and Dr Norman Behan (1908–2000), medical practitioner, art collector and philanthropist, who purchased and gifted the works to the School in the early 1960s.

In 1975 the Collection was relocated to The University of Queensland, where it is held on long-term loan. Revealing the breadth of Dr Behan’s interest in the visual arts, the Collection ranges from the 1840s to the 1960s and includes major works by artists such as Rupert Bunny, Bessie Gibson, George Lambert, Max Meldrum and Jon Molvig.

Curators: Bettina MacAulay and Desmond MacAulay
