About the Art and Europe Lecture Series

The National Gallery of Australia partnership with the ANU Centre for European Studies (2015-17) features lectures which showcase European links and influences. With the NGA’s extensive holdings of European art, there are many stories to be told through the collection.

The lectures focus on exploring the many connections between Australian and European history and culture and the Gallery's European art collection.
