    This early design for the front elevation of the Gallery by Government Architect Walter Liberty Vernon shows what little variation was made to this design when the building was actually erected. An open loggia was substituted at the end of the left wing of the facade and single Ionic columns replaced the paired Corinthinan ones on this design.
