This oil won £300
By ARNOLD SHORE
The Dunlop fourth annual art contest takes
pride of place among the six shows on view in Melbourne.
The £1,000 offered is again divided into six oil and five water - color prizes, with a special concession award of £50
to a still-life study by Reshid Bey.
The major prize of £300 was awarded to Laurie Pendlebury, Mel- bourne artist, for his sober, well - considered landscape study "Late Afternoon, Rhyll."
Pendlebury, above, with Sir Dallas Brooks, Governor, beside the win- ning entry at Tye's Gal-
lery, has won awards in a number of these annual Dunlop competitions.
Arthur Boyd, young representative in the present generation of the well-known artist family of Boyd, collected the second prize of £200.
His "Timber Clearing Near Eaglehawk" is typi- cally Australian with, as much of his present work shows, a curious link be- tween present - day thought and that of some of our very early painters.
Max Ragless, of South Australia; Max Middle- ton, Victoria; Howard Ashton, N.S.W.; and Lawrence Daws, Victoria,
collected the other oil
Len Annois won the top award for water- colors with a distin- guished study of the Pentland Hills near Bacchus Marsh.
Jacquelin Hick, S.A.; Catherine Jarvis, W.A.; John Loxton, Vic; and H. Gallop, N.S.W., won the other water-color prizes.
Some 900 paintings from every State of the Commonwealth were en- tered.
Al least 500 were of poor standard. Will Ash- ton, John Rowell, and myself know this only too well, being the judges.
