3 July 2013 | The Art Gallery of New South Wales has just revealed its acquisition of four major Australian art works.

These works include two John Brack paintings from the 1950s,
The new house and The breakfast table, Joy Hester's Figure with scales (pictured above) and Frank Hindler's Tram kaleidoscope.

These significant additions to the gallery's collection of Australian art were made possible through several avenues. The two John Brack works were acquired through funds provided by the Gleeson O'Keefe Foundation, the AGNSW Foundation and the Australian Masterpiece Fund. The Joy Hester acquisition was funded by the John M Gillespie Bequest, and the Frank Hindler acquisition was made possible through funds from the members of the Art Gallery Society of NSW.

All four paintings are now on display at the gallery.
