Dora Ohlfsen was one of Australia's foremost medallists in the first half of the twentieth century, although she principally lived in Europe and was better appreciated outside Australia. This medal is one of the most remarkable of all Australian commemorative medals. Its sensitive, romantic treatment of its subjects recalls European, and particularly French, medallic art. It was made at the artist's expense. She had worked as a nurse for the Red Cross in Italy during World War I, and was deeply moved by the experience.
