The Norman Lindsay Museum at Faulconbridge in the foothills of the Blue Mountains houses a collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures from one of Australia's most famous and loved artists and writers.
Dying in 1969 at the age of 90, Normal Lindsay was very controversial especially in his earlier career as his sumptuous nudes and racy prose drew the ire of a still very conservative society.
He is also famous for his children's books The Magic Pudding and the fictionalised version of his life depicted in the movie Sirens which was very popular at the time thanks to Elle Macpherson's breasts.
The Museum is located in and around "Springwood" which served as Norman's home and retreat for many years.

This Saturday (28th of Feb) the gallery is also hosting an evening of Jazz. The event will be held outside in the charming gardens and you are invited to bring your own picnic food, drink, blankets, and chairs.
Tickets cost $28 for adults and you need to book in advance. To book your tickets ring the gallery on (02) 4751 1067.
Gates will open at 4pm, and the concert will start at 5pm. The ticket price includes admission to the gallery so I'd suggest arriving at around 2pm to give yourself at least two hours to look around the gallery before closing time at 4pm.
Why? Great music and a chance to visit a very interesting gallery.
