Painted during a WWII bombing, it's no wonder these
#NudeAGNSW exhibiton-goers need some time to digest Belgian artist Paul Delvaux's surrealist work 'Sleeping Venus'.

One of the #artgalleryofnsw's recent major acquisitions is Louise Bourgeois' bronze 'Arched figure' which was cast in 2010, the year of the artist's death. The figure itself formed the basis of much of Bourgeois' work and grew out of her interest in the various dimensions of fear and pain. Here, it is shown in #NudeAGNSW adjacent to several of her paintings.

"I feel that my paintings stress the equality of men and women (women and men). To me, women were often portrayed as sex objects in humiliating poses. I wanted to give my perspective. I liked to portray both man and woman as intelligent and thoughtful people with dignity and humanism that emphasised love and joy." – Sylvia Sleigh.

"I have the feeling that I’m alive, I have a body. I’m seventy years old, and generally bodies of seventy year-old men look somewhat like my body... I’m using my body and saying, even though it’s a seventy year-old body, I can make it extremely interesting. That keeps me alive and gives me vitality. It’s a kind of process of energising myself."

Between March and April 1906, 300,000 people came to the Gallery to see Holman Hunt's painting 'The light of the world'. If you look closely, you'll notice that the #artgalleryofnsw was called the National Gallery of New South Wales at the time, and on very close inspection an early version of the state's license plates (number 218) can be seen on the back of one of the hansom cabs.
