^^^Still interesting though.
I like the shot of Bourke Street before the Mall and tree invasions.
As much as I like trees, they sometimes restrict the view of some great buildings. Lol, sometimes I have to wait until winter for the planes to drop their leaves so I can get that perfect shot.
The new gallery renovations have been executed with sympathy to Roy Grounds original design.
The whole job was carried out in such a way, that in future if they desire to restore the original floor plan, they can without any damage to the building.
I wont hear of any lament!
We needed this done to showcase our massive art collection!! :yes:
One can now access the rear garden through the Leonard French Ceiling room, which was inaccessible to the public in the past.
Note the entrance to the new sculpture garden on the left.
Excellent NGV pictures; while I think that the renovations are a reason job, sympathetic to the original design, I miss the extensive amount of timber that was in the original, it's a better contrasting material to the stone than metal; the yellow carpet was a good colour in the environment but must have been a bugger to keep clean - grey carpet is so PC; the Lindsay Court, hemmed in by the sky light, has lost the soaring quality it originally had; and what happened to all the Featherston furniture?
