Visitors to the Warwick Art Gallery will have the opportunity to view the Australian War Memorial’s touring exhibition ‘Remember Me: The Lost Diggers of Vignacourt’ as the first exhibition for 2018.
The unique First World War exhibition, which opened last Saturday 6 January, will travel to nine different cities and towns over three years.
“The photographs being exhibited represent one of the most important and recent discoveries of material from the First World War,” said Gallery Director Karina Devine.
The 74 photographs in the exhibition are part of The Louis and Antoinette Thuillier Collection, re-discovered in 2011 after sitting undisturbed for nearly a century in the attic of a farmhouse in the French village of Vignacourt. They were photographed by the enterprising husband-and-wife team, Louis and Antoinette Thuillier, who had set up a makeshift studio in their stable yard, just off the main street of Vignacourt.
The exhibition – which is open until Saturday 17 February – has been developed by the Australian War Memorial, which honours the contribution of Australian servicemen and women, with the generous support of Mr Kerry Stokes AC, the Seven Network, and Seven Group Holdings.
The Warwick Art Gallery is open from 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Friday and from 10am to 1pm Saturday and Sunday (closed Mondays and public holidays).
