We visited today to see this exhibition - it's just fantastic. Some absolutely beautiful paintings! The information about the paintings and photos and how they are linked to Italian history made the exhibition fascinating. Also the stories of how the items have survived through history...More

We followed the crowd to the Art Gallery - it is an impressive place. After coffees, we took on the collection of family art treasures on display - worth every cent - almost bought an art book or two, for some inspiration

Free entry. It's a nice and special exhibition. It's not to big but definitely worth a visit. You can spend 1-2 hours there.

By capital city standards this a smallish galleries but always has interesting works on "permanent" display. However it is generally the special exhibitions that motivate us to visit such as the current Corsini collection

Here you can see the various arts whether it is classic or modern art and the aboriginal arts across Western Australia. Not only the paintings shown here, but also the unique sculptures shown here in this art gallery.

I remember seeing a painting in your gallery (2 years ago?) by one of the "Heidelberg School"... ?McCubbin, Roberts? ... I don't remember who! It was a "cottage" scene, in the kitchen. As I recall, it showed a fire, with kettle on the hob, etc, with mantlepiece above. On the mantlepiece was an "old" clock (by our modern standards). When I came home, I looked at the old clock we have here, and I thought, "This is the same (or close to it) as the one in that painting in the WA Art gallery!" I now regret not taking more notice of that painting. Perhaps I should have taken a photo? (Is that allowed these days?) I can't recall the details of the painting... not even of the artist. I have a particular interest in Roberts/Mc Cubbin et al. and would be interested in finding out more about this painting if I can. Are you able to help me please? Can you identify the painting I have described? I'm sorry I don't have the name of the paining or even of the artist... just the "impression" it left on me. (I would love to have a picture of the painting... perhaps you have one in your shop?) Thank you for taking the trouble to at least read this e-mail... and, I hope, being able answer my query, Sincerely, Allen Edwards Bayswater, Victoria ________________________
