The first Australian 9 by 5 Impression Exhibition was an art exhibition in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition was opened on 17 August 1889 in Buxton’s Rooms on Swanston Street and featured 183 works; the majority of which were painted by the Australian impressionists Tom RobertsCharles Conder and Arthur Streeton. The exhibition was named for the dimensions of most of the paintings— 9 by 5 inches (23 cm × 13 cm), the size of a cigar box lid upon which many of the works were painted— and the Impressionist inspiration for the works.[1]Website information: studiosorrento.org
