Photograph 7502039
A painter from Amsterdam, Mrs Mita van Putten, made art history when she offered her work for sale in Australian dollars at an exhibition of her canvasses in Melbourne, Victoria (population 2 100 000). Normally all of the art in Australia is sold in Guineas - but as Australia will switch to decimal currency in 1966, Mrs van Putten and the director of the gallery where the exhibition was held, decided to offer the paintings in both guineas and dollars. Mrs van Putten shows her work at her bushland cottage at the seaside port of McCrae, 46 miles from Melbourne, on Port Phillip Bay
