The Historical Collection includes works from the 17th Century up to the early 19th Century, and touches on works that emerged at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Trace an emerging sense of place as artists struggled to understand this timeless land, its dazzling light, and its strange flora and fauna as a truly Australian school of art was realised.
There is nothing like a personal interaction to spark the imagination. Whether you’re a seasoned artistic traveller or apprentice explorer, our Voluntary Gallery Guides, offer that extra insight and revealing glimpse into the artwork, the era and the artist.
We are revitalising the Gallery spaces. Over the coming months some of our gallery spaces will be closed. The format and scope of content for some of AGWA’s guided tours will therefore be adapted to suit these changes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding during this time. Please ask our team at the front desk for more information.
