Watercolour on paper adhering to board. By non-Indigenous artist, TJ (Terry) Gleeson.
This collection was selected in 1958 and 1959 by Rex Battarbee at the request of the owner's father, Mr Bill Coulson, then President of the Queensland Society of Amateur Anthropologists. There was considerable interest and appreciation of Aboriginal art at that time, of both traditional works and art produced using western materials. Mr Coulson was a collector with a great personal interest in this art. He was also the producer of two films about the outback and one film of the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
