A member of the Com- monwealth Art Advisory Board, Mr. R. Campbell, who announced details of the dis

The Prime Minister, Mr. Menzies, and the British Arts . Council had asked for the i works of 12 Australians to'be , shown at overseas exhibitions.

Fifty-six paintings of the 12 . artists will be sent abroad.

Their paintings will be on display in London during the Coronation and at Britain's

_ five biggest provincial cities.

Later, the works will be shown at the world-famous Bicmmalce International Art Exhibition in Venice.

Mr. Campbell said the 12 artists, who would be told next week that their works had been chosen are: William Dobell. Russell Drysdale, Sid- ney Nolan, Lloyd Rees, Ronald Friend, Justin O'Brien. Jean Bellette, Constance Stokes, Arthur Boyd, Godfrey Millar, Frank Hinder, and Ralph Balsón.

Dobell. Drysdale, and Nolan will each have 10 paint- ings exhibited abroad, and Boyd six.

The artists had been select- ed by the gallery directors of all States at the request of the Arts Council.

Ten of the artists chosen now live in New South Wales. The- other two. Constance Stokes and Arthur Boyd, now live in Victoria.

Mr. Campbell said that many of the pictures chosen had been lent by private col-

lectors and the others had been chosen from national galleries.
