 Art Gallery of South Australia - this is the main cultural institution of South Australia. Located in the "cultural quarter" Adelaide - next to the State Library, the Museum of South Australia and University of Adelaide - the gallery presents world-famous rich collection of Australian art, especially Aboriginal and European and Asian. Over half a million people visit the gallery to see 35,000 of its exhibits - the second-largest collection of art in the country. Among the exhibits - paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, textiles, ceramics, precious stones and even furniture!

 The gallery was opened in 1881 and until 1967 was known as the "National Gallery of South Australia." Funds gallery grew and expanded, so that in 1996, had to move to a new building in the style of the Victorian era. The main exhibition gallery - landscapes and portraits ages 18-19 - is updated every three years. A special place is occupied by a collection of paintings by English artists, considered one of the most complete outside the UK. Gallery visitors can admire paintings by Van Dyck, Gainsborough, Turner, Renoir. Pay attention to the collection of drawings and engravings of the old masters - one of the richest in the world! It includes works by Dürer, Titian, Rubens, Rembrandt, Goya, Tintoretto, etc.
