Please note: For copyright and conservation reasons the National Gallery of Australia does not allow visitors to photograph or film works of art using devices of any kind inside the Gallery building.
Visitors are permitted, however, to photograph or film works of art in the Gallery’s Sculpture Garden.
While the Gallery owns the physical works of art in the collection, generally the artist/copyright holder retains the copyright separately and therefore has the exclusive right to control the reproduction of the work. Copyright holders may take legal action if copyright-protected works of art are photographed and reproduced without permission.
- High quality reproductions are available here
Some works of art on display are on loan from other collections or institutions and photography by members of the public may be prohibited as part of the loan conditions.
