In conjunction with The Greats, we’ve created a timeline that looks at some key moments in the development of public art museums.

Feel like making a long-term plan for your art historical edification (or just getting in a little background)? Well, right now the Art Gallery of NSW has a ‘Great’ with us that is worth checking out not only for its own sake but as a comparison piece to a rather wonderful visitor due here later this year.
Brett Whiteley travelled extensively, setting down his experiences in charcoal, photographs and paint – a visual diary of Paris, New York, Tokyo and Tangier. The exhibition Brett Whiteley: other places includes both his early works of Paris, which have never been displayed before, and his last experiences of this beautiful city.
The annual travel draw is exclusive to Gallery members. This year, there are ten luxury prizes worth over $85,000 to be won. Entries close 26 February.
