AGWA Historical logo

Discover AGWA’s oldest gallery space and explore early works in the Collection including the iconic Down on his luck by Frederick McCubbin.

Presenting works from the 1800s to the 1910s, this display features examples of some of the key art movements of the nineteenth century.

Many works take landscape as their subject,

and the artistic approaches range from a precise observation of nature to impressionist works capturing the fleeting e­ects of light and atmosphere.

Also on view are works that tell a story, and portraits that reveal the inner psychological state of their subjects.
