The Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney houses many fine pieces of artwork, too many to be put into a single blog. I have put them into several blogs, roughly following the sectional galleries of the the Gallery. Bear in mind, that nothing beat seeing these artwork life; so when you have the opportunity, head for this art gallery.
