Gustave Adrian Barnes - Windback Wednesday
Gustave Adrian Barnes (1877-1921) was the Curator at the Art Gallery of South Australia from 1918 to 1921. He lived on West Terrace in Kensington Gardens in a ‘plain, unfussy’ house that he designed, with a painting studio upstairs.
He worked as a designer, modeller, etcher and was well-known for his landscape paintings in oils and watercolours.
