NATIONAL GALLERY OF AUSTRALIA – CANBERRA – A SHORT VISIT

March 19, 2015

The National Gallery of Australia (NGA; originally the Australian National Gallery) is the national art museum of Australia as well as the largest art museum in the country, holding more than 166,000 works of art. It was established in 1967 by the Australian government as a national public art museum.

The focus of the Gallery’s international collection is primarily on late 19th-century and 20th-century art although not all artworks are not on display. There is a strong collection of modern works.

Here are some of the works that I saw:
