Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney

Botticelli, Leonardo, Cézanne, El Greco, Gauguin, Monet, Poussin, Raphael, Rubens, Titian, Turner, Vermeer... The Greats: masterpieces from the National Galleries of Scotland is an extraordinary and richly presented showcase of some the world's most revered old master paintings and drawings by many of the greatest names in European art.

Comprising over 70 outstanding works, all but two will be seen in Australia for the first time, including Botticelli's exceptional The Virgin adoring the sleeping Christ child. Drawn from the prestigious collection of the National Galleries of Scotland, the exhibition spans a period of more than 400 years from the Renaissance to Impressionism.

Presented exclusively in Australia by the Art Gallery of NSW as part of the Sydney International Art Series, this is a rare opportunity to experience, contemplate and appreciate the grandeur of The Greats.
