Peace, Love and War: the Denmans, Empire and Australia, 1910–1917

Lord Thomas Denman was Australia’s fifth Governor-General. He and his wife, the irrepressible Lady Gertrude Denman, resided in Australia from July 1911 to May 1914. This exhibition examines the political, cultural and Imperial interests of this imposing power couple – and those they influenced – in the context of rapidly evolving social values, against a backdrop of a Europe on the brink of World War.
