Masterpieces from Paris at National Gallery of Australia, Canberra

Official NGA Masterpieces website.
Getaway (travel tv show): General exhibition information including video review.

My friend recently saw this exhibition and it's with much shame that I admit I hadn't even heard about it until she told me she went.

For a limited time only, selected artistic masterpieces from the post-impressionism period from the Musée d'Orsay have been flown into the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

This is the first time the precious masterpieces have left Paris and Canberra is the lucky first city to get it.

Works featured are by: Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne, Monet, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso and more.

According to recent news reports such as SMH the event has been a blockbuster sell out and so far, more than 300,000 people have seen it and only 20% are locals. US President Obama has even had problems getting accommodation in the small city of Canberra due to this exhibition!

On one hand I really want to see this, but on the other I would prefer to see the works in their real 'home' in Paris. Canberra is a 4 hour (one way) drive from Sydney and I'm still deciding if I want to go or not.

Date: Until April 18, 2010.
Times: Easter: 10am-5pm Mon-Thur and 10am-9pm on Fri-Sun.
From 6 April: 9am-5pm Sun-Thur and 9am-9pm Fri-Sat.
Entry fee: $25 for adults, $16 concession and $6 for children up to 16 years of age.
Family tickets are $55 for two adults and two children.
