An obscure Society which functioned only spasmodically during the inter-war years. Australian George Coates was a founder member as was fellow countryman James Peter Quinn and an exhibitor in 1933 was Kathleen Emily Temple-bird. Annual exhibitions were held at the New Burlington Galleries, London with the last in April 1939.
