Decorative screen made for Arnold Danvers Power (1875-1959), bookseller and philanthropist, and bequeathed by him to the Royal Commonwealth Society, of which he had been a fellow. Power had travelled around the world three times, and during 1937-39, he commissioned the artist Heather Child to record his voyages on a screen, illustrated with incidents described in his diaries. It is made of three hinged panels of sycamore wood, each measuring 2 feet by 6 feet.
