A fine impression of the definitive state from the book edition of approximately 1000. Published in the French art review “XXeme Siecle No. 5-6”, Paris 1938. J.W. Power was a painter, author, patron, and philanthropist. After World War I he travelled to Europe and studied art, and his abstract compositions reflect a life of leisure and 1920s modernity. His most prolific period spans the late 1920s to early 1930s. Power left his estate to the University of Sydney to establish the Power Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Sydney, which led to the creation of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia.
