Melbourne Open House: Myer Mural Hall

I don’t know whether this was always there in the Myer building or if it’s a new addition. If it’s new, then it’s definitely worth a visit. Why?

Location:

Because the painter who loved the woman form, decided to do most of these paintings before he was conscripted to the war. And that’s when he lost his arm. As a painter, to lose your arm, is the worst possible thing. But you know what he did? He learned how to paint with his other hand.

Now, when you check out the photos. Can you tell me which ones were done before the war and which ones were done after? You’ll have to go to the place or visit the tour to find out. Or maybe if you ask really nicely, I just might let you in on the secret.
