INSIDE THE GALLERY (Australia): CHAU CHAK WING MUSEUM

July 27, 2021

Deputy Director Dr Paul Donnelly describes the foundation of the Chau Chak Wing Museum at the University of Sydney.  

The university's collections began with the Nicholson Collection of antiquities in 1860 and continued to grow to include the Macleay Collections of natural history, ethnography, science and historic photography, and the University Art Collection

While the collections themselves aren’t new, being able to see them is. The Chau Chak Wing Museum triples the exhibition space previously available. 70 per cent of the items on display have not been seen publicly for over 20 years. 

From ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt, to the art of First Nations people, and the works of leading contemporary artists, the Chau Chak Wing Museum is a centre of cultural and artistic excellence.

This film is a major major retrospective devoted to da Vinci's entire career as a painter. It shows how Leonardo placed painting above all other disciplines, and how his investigation of the world – the “science of painting” as he called it – was the instrument of an art whose supreme ambition was to give life to his works. The insights provided by the exhibition curators during this private filmed visit provide a new understanding of Leonardo’s artistic practice and painting technique.
