Over 80 rarely seen watercolours are exhibited in the Grand Courts of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Thanks to the Gallery Collection, the watercolours made between the 1830s and 1900 are presented in a Victorian-style display, bringing the exhibition to life.

It's delightful to be able to appreciate these amazing works - they're delicated and beautifully painted. The subjects of the watercolours are diverse, including landscape, portrait, still life and more. Also, I was elated to find that there're some works from Russian artists, and Alexandre Nicolaievitch Roussoff and Nicolas Chevalier are among them.
Oil painting exhibitions are usually the mainstream, so this is a rare chance to see a fine collection of 19th century watercolours in such a big scale. It's an exhibition not to be missed and closes on 3 December.
