The architect John Sulman (1849–1934) was a trustee of the Art Gallery of New South Wales from 1899–1934 and president from 1919 until his death in 1934. His children endowed the Sir John Sulman Prize for genre (subject) painting or mural decoration, to be awarded annually by the Gallery's trustees in conjunction with the Archibald and Wynne Prizes. Sulman's architectural commissions in Australia include the Women's College, University of Sydney (1890–94) and Presbyterian churches at Woollahra, Manly and Randwick. His most important work was the Thomas Walker Convalescent Hospital at Concord.
