The study room provides a unique opportunity for anyone with an interest to view close-up some of the works not currently on display – including many that are rarely exhibited. Tutors are also encouraged to use the room for their relevant classes.
The works – both Australian and international – range from historical to contemporary across a huge variety of styles and techniques. The collection also includes original sketch books, printing blocks and artists books.
