Geelong Gallery collection

16 December 2017 to 02 September 2018

Geelong Gallery is one of Australia’s leading and oldest regional galleries with an extensive history of—and commitment to—collecting since its first acquisitions were made in 1900. This selection of paintings, works on paper, decorative arts and sculpture from the collection charts developments in Australian art from the mid-19th century to the present, through works that encompass a variety of genres, themes and stylistic approaches including landscapes, still-life, portraits, social history, figuration and abstraction.
