Drawn from the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland – one of the finest small galleries in the world – the exhibition comprises 40 paintings and 33 drawings by some of the outstanding names of European art: Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, Veronese, El Greco, Velázquez, Poussin, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Watteau, Constable, Turner, Gainsborough, Reynolds, Ramsay, Raeburn, Sargent, Monet, Degas, Gauguin, Seurat and Cézanne. Many of these artists have never been exhibited in Sydney before.

Owing to a forthcoming refurbishment, the National Galleries of Scotland is able to lend many of its most significant works. The exhibition will tour to America before arriving in Sydney. The Art Gallery of NSW is the only Australian venue.

Part of the Sydney International Art Series, bringing the world’s most outstanding exhibitions to Australia, exclusively to Sydney, every summer.
