International and Asian Collection

PERMANENT
QAG | Gallery 7, Gallery 8, Gallery 9, Philip Bacon Galleries | Free

The International and Asian galleries offer an opportunity to experience major works from the Gallery's collections in new contexts, and include early European religious painting, British portraits, Dutch painting, and East Asian and European porcelain. From the influence of Japanese art on French Modernism to the representation of daily life, the display explores rich dialogues across time and between cultures, punctuated with contemporary works that engage with these themes and histories.
