“Not a bad little gallery!”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

OK, so it's not the Prado, Louvre or Uffizi, but it's not a bad little gallery in this far flung corner of the world. A good collection (one or two pieces by many famous artists) and nicely set out. Our little gallery is something for Sydney to be proud of.

“Picasso amongst Aussie greats”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Always a wonderdul day at the Gallery - but a little more crowded with Picasso there. The shop has some wonderful and reasonably priced souvenirs to please all ages.

“Perfectly Picasso”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

Our normal place of residence is Brisbane, Queensland. We dashed down to Sydney for the weekend for a wedding and added a visit to the AGNSW as Masterpieces from the Musee National Picasso, Paris was still in the gallery. While it is something of a sprint to keep up with the crowd, which seems undiminished after 4 months, one nevertheless gets a sense of the breadth and depth of Picasso's enormous output - as well as his extraordinarily complex life. While the exhibition itself is very interesting, it is made even more enjoyable by spending a few hours comparing and contrasting his works with the balance of the gallery. If you are heading to Sydney before 25 March 2012, definitely add a visit to the AGNSW to your itinerary.
