The Pearl River is an extensive river system in southern China. The river is so named because of the pearl-colored shells that lie at the bottom of the river in the section that flows through the city of Guangzhou. More on The Pearl River

Born in Melbourne, Charles William Bush studied under Mcinnes (q. v.) and Wheeler at the National Gallery of Victoria School, and later taught there from 1954 to 1955. After his appointment as a war artist in 1943, he studied, travelled and exhibited overseas. In partnership with his longtime companion Phyl Waterhouse, and June Davies, he established the Leveson Street Gallery, Melbourne, in 1962. Bush was equally adept with pen and brush, and won many awards for his skilful, professional paintings which included landscapes, seascapes, genre and portraits. (He was also widely known throughout Australia for his long-running weekly television programme My Fair Lady.)  More on Charles William Bush
