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

  • 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.

  • Didn't pay to see any of the special exhibitions so just walked around the free stuff, which was interesting. A great range of works across different mediums from different time periods. I really enjoyed the sculptures as well. Some of the modern/abstract art was a bit out there but there was so much to see. Be aware that you must check backpacks in at the cloak storage though. Some staff were a bit rude too. Worth a look though.

  • Great experience. Parking costs $8.70/hr on the street which is outrageous in my humble opinion. We went on a Sunday and decided to park in the domain car park. $12 all day and a very short walk to the gallery. Entry to the gallery is free and you an get up close to some of Australia's most iconic paintings. Gallery staff might consider being a bit nicer to children who get too close to paintings. Reducing them to fearful tears was too much. Not a good start to their life as art appreciators.

  • Nice place with friendly staff. Entry is free (unless there's a special exhibition). Exhibitions are always intriguing and feature diverse artworks of all sorts. Would highly recommend for anyone with a good eye for art, as well as those interest in cultural beauty. I wouldn't bring children as they won't understand the artworks (some feature slight nudity).

  • I really enjoyed this gallery. Large sections of it are free for the public, you will have to pay to see special exhibits, however. There is a cafe inside, and it is all very access friendly. There are even large print booklets in every exhibit, just in case you can't read the small print on the little plaques. There are many levels, and sometimes they have events. Some of the events can be a bit out there, but it's always interesting.
