Permanent collection
20 July 2013 to 5 July 2015

As a complement to the award-winning handbook on the Gallery’s collections, a new selection of works from the permanent collection has been installed in the Douglass and Hitchcock galleries.
This new presentation links historical, modern and contemporary works based on various thematic groupings—juxtaposing much-loved iconic works with others that are on display for the first time in many years.
Prominent themes include alpine vistas in the romantic tradition, the reclining nude, aspects of the Australian landscape, portraits with a particular focus on the gaze of the subject, variations on the still life tradition, the stylised figure, the treed landscape and geometric abstraction.
