Comprising over 38,000 works of art, the Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide is the country’s second largest state collection. The museum is known for its extensive holdings of Australian and indigenous art – including works by Sidney Nolan, Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton – and its holdings of European art reaching from the Renaissance to the present day. The museum also presents a number of examples of Asian art from across the continent, including India and Japan, and Australia’s only gallery dedicated solely to Islamic art.
