HAMILTON Art Gallery’s renowned Paul Sandby collection has gone on tour to Gippsland Art Gallery.
Often regarded as one of the finest gatherings of the artists work in Australia, the collection has recently travelled to Gippsland to delight eastern Victorians with their early 19th century charm.
The works originally came to the gallery through both the generosity and purchase from the Gaussen family of ‘Gringegalgona’ near Balmoral.
They have proudly occupied the walls of the gallery which is dedicated to the family since the 1970s.
The pieces will make up the main body of the exhibition, The Art of Paul Sandby 1731-1809, from May 30 as part of the Gippsland International Series.
Hamilton Art Gallery has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with Gippsland over the years with a shared dedication to bringing artworks of the highest artistic standard to regional audiences.
While the Sandby collection is enjoying its time in the spotlight, the upstairs gallery has welcomed some new faces into the space.
