Over 300,000 people visited the Gallery during March and April 1906 to see William Holman Hunt’s painting, The Light of the World. In 1921, the inaugural Archibald Prize was awarded to William Beckwith McInnes for his portrait of the architect Desbrowe Annear. The equestrian statues The Peace Offerings and The War Offerings of Gilbert Bayes were installed in front of the main façade in 1926.[5] James Stuart MacDonald was appointed director and secretary in 1929. In 1936, the first Sulman Prize was awarded to Henry Hanke for The Gypsy. John William Ashton was appointed director and secretary in 1937.[1] In 1969, construction began on the Gipsy Wing.
In 1969, construction began on the Captain Cook Wing to celebrate the bicentennial of Cook’s landing at Botany Bay. The new wing opened in May 1972, following Missingham’s retirement and the appointment of Peter Phillip Laverty as director in 1971.[1] The new wing opened in May 1972, following Missingham’s retirement and the appointment of Peter Phillip Laverty as director in 1971.[1] The new wing was completed in 1937.
The newly appointed Government Architect, Walter Liberty Vernon, secured the prestigious commission over John Horbury Hunt in 1895. Vernon believed that the Gothic style admitted of a greater individuality and richness «which cannot be obtained in the colder and more inflexible lines of Classical Pagan». The trustees were unconvinced and demanded a classical temple with the art, not unlike William Henry Playfair at the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh, opened in 1859.[24] The Gothic style of the church, however, was not the only one to be built by the trustees.

One of the most important museums in Australia is located in Sydney. It is the Art Gallery of New South Wales, a benchmark of Australian culture. It is located within the gardens of The Domain, and getting to it is quite easy, as it is only a five-minute walk from the center of Sydney.
This museum shows to the numerous visitors who come to it up to 30 annual exhibitions, in addition to a permanent collection that includes the best Australian and post-impressionist artists. In this exhibition the works of Fred Williams, Sir Sydney Nolan and Brett Whiteley deserve to be highlighted.
Within the permanent exhibition we find several classifications among which are Aboriginal art, Asian art, photography, European art and contemporary art works made by Australian or international artists.
In addition to the importance of the collections and the relevance of its artists, one of the main characteristics of the Art Gallery of New South Wales lies in its building, which is one of the distinctive landmarks of the city of Sydney. The current building is the work of architect Walter Vernon, who won a competition to build the Gallery.
