I was in need of a cultural fix so I wandered in, half expecting to be disappointed. I wasn’t. I was thrilled. I’d forgotten just how good Australian art can be. In London I became not only spoiled but complacent about the ready availability of some of the world’s finest artistic offerings being freely available and just a stone’s throw away. Now I find myself a stone’s throw away from some of the finest work to come out of this country, and while it may not be a storehouse of European masterpieces it’s nonetheless a treasure trove of Australia’s finest.
