Notes:
Exhibited 27 May - 13 July 2003 at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery. The Australian pastellist, Janet Cumbrae Stewart, came to prominence in the years before the Great War. As an expatriate artist in Britain, France and Italy in the 1920s and 30s, she developed an international profile. Queen Mary bought and commissioned works from her, and she showed at the Royal Academy, London, the Paris salon and the Venice Biennale. By the time of her death in 1960, however, Stewart's work had fallen into critical neglect. A new exhibition at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery titled "The Perfect Touch" is re-assessing her extraordinary achievement.
