Sydney on the Fly 3


From the Art Gallery of New South Wales, we walked across the Domain to Sydney Hospital. The building stands on the site of the old Rum Hospital, as described in the plaque above. From front, the current hospital looks rather grim.

However the central courtyard is much more likeable, with an ornamental fountain and plenty of interesting architectural details.

Sydney on the Fly 2

These two artworks caught our attention in the “Glorious” exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, which we featured yesterday. The large and rather Chinese style painting above is “Blossom gatherers II” by Indian/English artist Raqib Shaw. The 17th century Japanese screen below depicts Flowers of the four seasons” starting with the New Year on the right.
