Mawson | Delprat Exhibition
Exhibition 16–27 September 2019
196 North Terrace, Adelaide, South Australia
10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday
It is our great pleasure to offer here a selection of items, some rare and important, others unusual or curious, but at all times interesting, and with the guaranteed provenance of Antarctic explorer Sir Douglas Mawson and his father-in-law, Guillaume Daniel Delprat, General Manager of BHP.
Highlights include a seventeenth-century Dutch armoire; rare Antarctic photographs by Frank Hurley, T.W. Edgeworth David and Andrew Watson (among the first images of that part of the continent); artefacts taken on Mawson's Antarctic expeditions; and a singular oil painting by Charles Harrisson, artist and biologist on Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition, 1911–1914, presented to Paquita and Douglas on their wedding day in March 1914.
