    I have put together a list of names that Loma used over her career:

    Turnbull, Loma Kyle
    Latour, Loma Kyle Turnbull
    Lautour, Loma
    Lautour, Loma Kyle Turnbull
    Lindsay, Loma
    Turnbull, Loma
    Jamieson, Loma Kyle

    The Latour/Lautour idea came from her great-grandmother, Loma Lomax, and her great-great-grandfather, General Peter Latour, which she commonly also spelt 'Lautour’.

    The Latour/Lautour idea came from her great-grandmother, Loma Lomax, and her great-great-grandfather, General Peter Latour, which she commonly also spelt 'Lautour’.

    http://www.daao.org.au/bio/loma-kyle-turnbull-lautour/biography/

    Loma was born Loma Kyle Tunbull on 16 May 1902.

    She was born at Mellool station, Moulamein, New South Wales. Moulamein, NSW. "The oldest town in the Riverina. Today it is hard to believe that by the middle of the 19th century Moulamein was the most important administrative centre in the Riverina. Today it is a quiet little town on the banks of the Edward River and Billabong Creek servicing the surrounding wheat and rice-growing properties. Moulamein is located 855 km south-west of Sydney via Yass, Wagga, Narrandera and Hay. It is 70 km north-east of Swan Hill and 373 km north of Melbourne. It is only 67 m above sea-level." (http://www.aussietowns.com.au/town/moulamein-nsw)

    Her father was a station manager George Stewart Turnbull and her mother was Louisa, née Scott (d.1903), a writer and china painter.

    Some suggested reasons for all of the confusion over the names.

    Two of them are her married names. Loma married twice. The first marriage was to Raymond Lindsay …. The son of Norman Lindsay. They married on 28 December 1928 according to the Latour, Loma Kyle (1902–1964) by Jan Roberts published in Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 15, (MUP), 2000 (http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/latour-loma-kyle-10788).

    This article appeared in January 1929:
    "Secret Weddings.

    Two secret weddings came to light over the week-end. The first was of particular interest to artistic circles, since the groom was none other than Ray Lindsay, second son of the great artist Norman, who, on his heights at Springwood on the Blue Mountains, looks benignly on all mankind's failings. Ray, who recently created a furore by his picture "The Arrest of Governor Bligh," which was bought by Dame Nellie Melba, chose for his bride Loma Latour, a well known tall and dusky maiden, who has helped innumerable charity dances and treasure hunts to , success. Young Phil Lindsay, the baby of the family, who is determined one day to be a great writer, was the only outsider at the wedding." ( Western Mail (Perth, WA) ; Thu 10 Jan 1929 Page 34 )

    I have noted that the address of Mr and Mrs Raymond Lindsay was given as Kenilworth Flats, Hardie Street Darlinghurst in The Sun (Sydney, NSW) on Sunday 27 January 1929 p 40:

    "Mrs. Ray Lindsay, who was formerly Miss Loma Lautour, was the guest of honor at a party given recently by her friends at the Australia. Those present included Mrs. Jessica Lee, the Misses Thelma Vernon, Lyall Davison, Esma Seaward, Irene Standen, Mary Lee, Lila Dunn, May Green and Mollie Henderson. Mr. and Mrs. Lindsay are living at Kenilworth Flats, Darlinghurst."

    Loma and Raymond soon separated but remained married until their divorce in 1940.

    We read in the SMH of September 5 1940 : "LINDSAY v LINDSAY.

    Raymond Lindsay v Loma Kyle Lindsay (formerly Turnbull). Marriage, December 28, 1928, Sydney, by registrar. Issue, non-compliance with restitution order. Decree nisi. Mr. A. K. Stevens (instructed by Messrs. Savegh Cotter and Co.) for petitioner."

    It also mentions the date of their marriage as " December 28, 1928"

    Her second marriage was to Victor Jamieson in 1941. Victor died in 1946.

    In 1940 Latour moved to Lansvale intending to breed dogs, to garden and to write. At St Columba's Presbyterian Church, Woollahra, on 28 March 1941, the day her previous marriage was dissolved, she married Victor Clarence ('Jamie') Jamieson, a fitter in the Australian Imperial Force. He left for Singapore on 10 April and became a prisoner of war. For a time Latour made camouflage at Bankstown before returning to inner Sydney. Jamieson was discharged from the army in June 1946; his health was poor, the marriage shaky, and he was drinking heavily (as was Loma). He died at her studio 'on or about' 21 July 1946 after accidentally drinking cyanide from a beer bottle. She eventually secured a war-widow's pension.

    Moving to Brisbane in 1950, Latour immediately attracted favourable reviews when she exhibited her masks, pottery and jewellery with the Royal Queensland Art Society, the Moreton Galleries and the Half Dozen Group of Artists. She formed new friendships, especially with the antique dealer Cecilia McNally, who sold her jewellery. Latour soon bought a waterfront acreage on Stradbroke Island. There she lived contentedly in a studio-shack with assorted animals and 'cousin Roy' Needrie, a jeweller. She established a vineyard and orchard, going about naked or in a lap-lap. In 1962 she suffered a vicious sexual assault from which she never fully recovered. Latour died of emphysema and asthma on 19 December 1964 at the Repatriation General Hospital, Greenslopes; she bequeathed her eyes to the Eye Bank and her body to the University of Queensland.

    “Her first solo exhibition, held in the Women’s Industrial Arts Society’s rooms in July 1936, was mainly of pottery and small models, the fruit of her six-month sojourn with Mashman Brothers Pottery where her design for a garden urn was evidently put into production. “ - Cooke, Glenn R

    New Society Formed

    THE old Society of Women Painters has recently found its scope enlarged and its identity somewhat altered by the establishment of the Women's Industrial Arts Society, into which it has been absorbed. . This new organisation embraces both art for art's sake and art for commercial purposes, and to show its all-embracingness an exhibition in several sections of women's art work will be opened by Lady Hore-Ruthven, assisted by the Lady Mayoress (Mrs. A. L. Parker), at the Education Building on May 3. Mrs. A. P. Clinton (Frank Payne) is the president, Mrs. Bain Scott treasurer, and Mrs. M. I. Drury secretary.

    It seems that the first two exhibitions of the new society were held in the Education Dept. rooms. Later moved to the Victoria Arcade where they had meeting rooms from May 1936. The third exhibition was held in these rooms at the Victoria Arcade. It was a matter of size, I suppose. The first exhibition was opened on May 3, 1935 shortly after the establishment of the new organisation and a year later the next exhibition in May too, open to the public on May 18.

    Of interest to me is that Loma Lautour took part in the second exhibition in May and then about six weeks later held an exhibition on her own (in her studio) at the Victoria Arcade that opened on July 1 1936. I am not sure whether her studio was on the third or the fourth floor of the Victoria Arcade. Certainly in March 1937 she and Dietje Andriesse held a studio party and exhibition at the Arcade. "The SMH of Thursday May 27 tells about the "Studio Party. The fire escape between the third and fourth floors of the Victoria Arcade will probably be the scene of much coming and going on Saturday, when Miss Loma Latour and Miss Deetje Andriesse are preparing to receive the guests at their studio party. The escape is a splendid short cut between the studios. The originality which usually distinguishes studio parties promises to make this one a success, and the invitations are decorated with a Jaunty girl's figure in an artist's smock. There is additional interest, too, in the recent Vice-Regal visit to the studio; Lady Wakehurst asked to see it last week, and had many complimentary things to say about the plaster cast of a bronze head, which Miss Latour intends to call "Daydreams," and which she plans to exhibit at the Royal Art Society's exhibition." (The SMH of Thursday May 27, 1937.) But on different floors !!! Two studios: one on the third floor and another on the fourth ..... linked by a fire escape it seems as you read in the SMH article a couple of days before the event.

    Loma Kyle Latour (1902-1964), sculptor, was born on 16 May 1902 at Mellool station, Moulamein, New South Wales, daughter of Victorian-born parents George Stewart Turnbull, station manager, and his wife Louisa, née Scott (d.1903), a writer and china painter. At her mother's wish Loma was not baptized. 'Farmed out' to relations in England, she was educated by governesses and at boarding school. At the age of 12 she returned to Australia with three enduring characteristics: a cultivated English accent, a rebellious spirit and a passion for art. Her father had remarried, but Loma never met her stepmother. She was sent to stay with relations and repeatedly ran away. After one blazing row, she went to Sydney and changed her name to 'Latour' (also spelt 'Lautour'). Concealing her age, she acted in melodramas and took walk-on parts in Shakespearian plays with Allan Wilkie's company. As actor, model and artist, she led a bohemian existence. On 28 December 1928 at the registrar general's office, Sydney, she married Raymond, second son of Norman Lindsay; they separated in the mid-1930s.

    With her unconventional direct speech and stylish good looks, Latour was regularly interviewed and photographed in her Kings Cross studio, chain-smoking and briefly clad. Influenced by Jacob Epstein and trained by Rayner Hoff, she became well known as a sculptor. She worked hard to earn her living, often for eighteen hours a day, making everything from china dolls' heads to large papier-mâché figures for the 1938 Sydney sesquicentenary floats; she also produced masks, bronze and terracotta busts of friends like Dulcie Deamer, lino-cuts, jewellery and Art Deco chrome-metal lights. Her output was prodigious, and original.

    In Sydney in the 1930s Latour exhibited with the Women's Industrial Art Society, the Society of Artists, the Contemporary Art Society and the Royal Art Society. In 1936 the National Art Gallery of New South Wales purchased 'The Egoist', her glazed earthenware bust of George Bernard Shaw. She taught modelling and pottery, and was employed at Mashman Bros Ltd's pottery works in 1936; in addition, she executed numerous large-scale plaster, brass and concrete murals and fountains, as for the Minerva Theatre, Kings Cross, in 1938. The nude was her favourite subject and Holly Farram her favourite model.

    In 1940 Latour moved to Lansvale intending to breed dogs, to garden and to write. At St Columba's Presbyterian Church, Woollahra, on 28 March 1941, the day her previous marriage was dissolved, she married Victor Clarence ('Jamie') Jamieson, a fitter in the Australian Imperial Force. He left for Singapore on 10 April and became a prisoner of war. For a time Latour made camouflage at Bankstown before returning to inner Sydney. Jamieson was discharged from the army in June 1946; his health was poor, the marriage shaky, and he was drinking heavily (as was Loma). He died at her studio 'on or about' 21 July 1946 after accidentally drinking cyanide from a beer bottle. She eventually secured a war-widow's pension.

    Moving to Brisbane in 1950, Latour immediately attracted favourable reviews when she exhibited her masks, pottery and jewellery with the Royal Queensland Art Society, the Moreton Galleries and the Half Dozen Group of Artists. She formed new friendships, especially with the antique dealer Cecilia McNally, who sold her jewellery. Latour soon bought a waterfront acreage on Stradbroke Island. There she lived contentedly in a studio-shack with assorted animals and 'cousin Roy' Needrie, a jeweller. She established a vineyard and orchard, going about naked or in a lap-lap. In 1962 she suffered a vicious sexual assault from which she never fully recovered. Latour died of emphysema and asthma on 19 December 1964 at the Repatriation General Hospital, Greenslopes; she bequeathed her eyes to the Eye Bank and her body to the University of Queensland."

The society, catering for women artists and handicraft workers, and for women's tastes in art and handicrafts, was founded early in 1935, and sprang from the Women's Painters' Society, which was formed by Miss Lilian Chauvel and Lady Chelmsford 28 years ago. This is its third exhibition. The society has clubrooms in the Victoria Arcade, where it is hoped that many smaller exhibitions will be held from now on. The president, Mrs. A. P. Clinton, is better known as "Frank Payne," several of whose child-studies in oils are at present on show in the exhibition.

    MONG the many art shows at present on view in Sydney is that of the Australian Water Colour Institute at the Educational Galleries. Quccnsland- ers represented include G. I. William son, F. W. Potts, and Roy Parkinson. The work of Norman Lindsay, the late B. E. Minns, and Margaret Coen domi- notcs this show. One of the most origi nal efforts, however, is by Mary Edwards, who alternates between vivid island sub jects and delicately mystical studies. Her effort, " Christmas Bells." comes under the latter category. " The Bells " are painted to represent three bouffant skirted ladies, whose titian heads fade into a misty background and whose long brown gloves are fashioned from the flowers' slender stems. The Industrial Art Society in the same city, in which Quccnslander Frank Payne (Mrs. A. P. Clinton) Is actively interested, has a loan exhibition on at present of Roy de Maistre's works. There are others booked to follow and in Octo ber the society will probably stage a show of its own at David Jones. « Its club rooms, in Castlercagh Street, with their grey walls and white mould ings, are distinctively effective. They possess a pleasant Bohemian air which attracts both social and working mem bers. Butter boxes, topped by Morris green, form a feature of the seating accommodation. Chianti bottles, swung across a screen, strike a picturesque note. There are gay rugs and bowls of chrysanthemums, and in the luncheon corner with its striped cloths an in formal meal may bo enjoyed.

Mrs. Hubert Fairfax opening the exhlbition 0f heads masks figures, panels, lino cuts, and tapestry by Miss Loma Lautour in the Castlereagh Fine Art Gallery, Rowe Street, yesterday afternoon said that Miss Lautour was one of the young people in Australia who were forcing upon others an admiration of beauty in the art form. The exhibition will continue until August 3 Miss Lautour's modelling has had a place in various exhibitions but not until now has the artlst held a show of her own. Her sculptural work is interesting but it lacks assurance. In many cases the spectator re- mains conscious only of the outward texture and feels the lack of a bony structure be- neath. Where Miss Lautour has advcntured into an Epstein-like roughness of surface, the faces, instead of gaining character simply look weather-beaten. Some of the smaller figures are more vital because simpler In their pretensions. The masks are lively and varied. _______________

For not only is it a fashion, but it has other merits besides, chief of which is that it is easily polished; and, secondly, that it does not tarnish. But, alas, the nicest things are often out of reach, and many people find that the beautiful imported chromium- plated articles displayed in 'the shops are far beyond their purse. But, fortunately in Australia, we never fail to find that the demand can be equalled by the supply, and already many well-known Austra lian artists are turning their talents towards the designing of articles that can be chromium-plated and that equal the imported article in beauty of design and perfection of finish. Among these artists is the young Australian sculptress, Loma Lau- tour, who is using her talent for designing such decorative and prac tical articles as trays, lamps, book- A tray which shows a Mermaid de sign, extremely graceful as well- as being quit e modernistic.

    T WAS interested to hear the history * of the brass inlay panel which Loma Lautour is showing at the Royal Art Society's exhibition. She tells me that the Idea was suggested to her by Chinese cloisonne-waie. It is made with 75 feet of brass strips, which had to be cut with a hand- saw nnd soldered together to make the out- lines of the figure. All the soldering had to be done twice, as the panel was broken when Miss Lautour moved into her Hunter Street studio. The drawing for the panel was placed under a sheet of plate glass, and after mak- ing the outlines the spaces were filled in with composition. The finished piece was so heavy that it took five people to carry it around to tlip EduraHnn Derjartment Galleries.
