Sharing the Vision: Marion Bolton and the Lindsay Collection

This exhibition pays tribute to Marion Bolton (1908-1994) and her vital role, alongside her husband W.R.F. Bolton (1905-1973), to establish and maintain the Lionel Lindsay Gallery and Library Collection. The Lindsay Collection was officially opened to the public in 1959 and has been housed at Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery since 1994.


‘out of the box’: The Lionel Lindsay Library

The Lionel Lindsay Art Gallery and Library was established by W.R.F. (Bill) and Marion Bolton in Toowoomba in 1959. Writing to Lionel Lindsay himself in 1957, Bill Bolton had justly predicted that the library collection ‘will be something absolutely out of the box’ – meaning something excellent and outstanding. This exhibition uncovers some of the treasure hunts that made and still make the Lionel Lindsay Library outstanding. It showcases treasured items and tells stories about bibliophiles, collectors and dealers who assisted the Boltons to bring them together.
