Moffitt Bequest

In 1956, a number of works were acquired through the Moffitt Bequest. Dr. Charles Gordon Moffitt was Medical Superintendent at Kenmore Hospital in Goulburn from 1921 – 1937. He worked with the artist Roy de Maistre to devise a treatment for patients using colour therapy. de Maistre had devised his own colour theory based on the scales of music and is considered to be one of Australia’s first modernist painters. Two of de Maistre’s paintings are in the Moffitt Collection of GRAG along with those by other artists, thought to have previously been in the collection of Moffitt’s uncle, Major-General Charles George Gordon, CB.
