Art Gallery Of New South Wales - Review
The Art Gallery of Sydney has a huge collection of artistry and its variations from across the country and also across continents. It is situated in The Domain, and features Asian and European Art and exhibitions in addition to Australian collection of Australian art. There are also sections on contemporary art and photography.
The 19th century featured many additions of European Art such as the Chaucer at the Court of King Edward III, created by Madox Brown. Besides bringing in various works of Australian artistry, The Gallery also houses an exceptional number of English artistry created during the Victorian era, namely Sir Edward John Poynter and Lord Frederic Leighton. The artwork of Dutch, Italy and France of since the 16th century, which were created by Domencico Beccafumi, Peter Paul Ribens, etc. are also included and maintained in the Gallery. Among Australian Art, the works of John Glover, John Russell, E. Phillips Fox, Rupert Bunny and Roland Wakelin are greatly featured.
All in all, this place is perfect if you want the total art experience and want to be educated about every aspect of art.

Art Gallery Of New South Wales, Sydney Reviews
A beautiful elegant building that is most appropriate to host an art gallery. General areas freely open to the public as it should be. I highly recommend the displays of the artworks of the old masters. Not too keen on the post modern art myself! Give yourself at least 1.5 hours to browse the public displays and become an art critic for the time you’re there!
Free entry into a beautiful art gallery in a large city is hard to find, but Sydney is blessed to have such a wonderful public gathering space. During the day it’s quiet and speckled with small groups of children learning about different aspects of art. There’s so much to see and the global exhibitions change fairly frequently so you can go throughout the year without seeing the same things again and again. I would highly recommend coming here if you have kids or have a passion for art yourself. Check out the Archibald if you can as it’s all Australian art and it’s beautiful!
I adore this place. Fantastic collection of art from all over the world and across time. Brilliant exhibitions, talks and tours. Many free tours daily with guides who are knowledgeable, articulate and clearly love the gallery as much as I do. I used to avoid tours but these are entirely splendid. I've take some tours multiple times and always learn something new. If you like at, go see it. If you're not much interested, take a free tour - I've met people who've never been to a gallery before and after the guided talk, can't wait to come back.
I was there for John Russell's art works. And they are so stunning and beautiful. I'm in love with the painting which the artist's wife was standing in the middle of a flowers garden. Its like... you can immediately feel his eternal love for her once you saw this pictures painting. It was unforgettable experience to me.
For Free entry, Asian, Australian, contemporary, aboriginal art forms. European past century artwork well presented and guided. 3 levels of extraordinary display. The building exterior itself is fascinating and picturesque. Surrounded by domain gardens, it marks a well rounded outing for your day. Always check for “whats “ on for paid exhibitions.
