to-day have laid well and truly national foundations
upon which their sons and daughters will build
effectively. The scenic beauty of the land and
the busy enterprise of the people are incentives to
good work by brush and palette. J. E. S.
MELBOURNE.—Mr. H. S. Power, a
returned Australian painter who has
“ made good” in England and Scot-
land with his pictures of hunting and
sporting incidents, recently held a successful exhi-
bition at the Guild Elall here. This artist is gifted
with a fine sense of movement and colour, and his
pictures awakened the keenest interest among art-
loving Australians generally. The Exmoor Stag
Hunt, Young England, Toil, and many others
testified to his keen love for nature and the
character of animals generally.
Another exhibition of much interest was that
held by Mr. George Coates and Miss Dora Meeson,
two Australians well known as exhibitors at the
London and Paris exhibitions, but who, neverthe-
less, had all their grounding in art in Australia.
Mr. Coates’s work, mostly figure, is excellent, his
handling of textures and skilful posing being much
admired. Some of his Salon and Royal Academy
triumphs were exhibited. His wife (Dora Meeson-
Coates) is best in landscape work, though she also
has done some good figure work. J. S.
