THE BALNAVES GIFT

2 October - 21 November 2015

In mid 2010 Neil Balnaves AO made the extremely generous pledge to donate a million dollar's worth of paintings from his personal art collection to the Mosman Art Gallery and municipality.  This was realised in 2012 through a donation of 16 Australian impressionist and early twentieth century artworks significant to the Mosman area.  The Balnaves Gift includes key works by several of Australia's most distinguished artists:  Arthur Streeton, Conrad Martens, Will Ashton, Henry Fullwood, Elioth Gruner, George Halstead, James Ranalph Jackson, Matthew Charles Meere, Adelaide Elizabeth Perry, Sydney Long, Ethel Carrick Fox and Margaret Preston.  These works are being loaned to Goulburn and will be exhibited with complementary works from the goulburn.art REGIONAL GALLERY Collection.
