Sydney collector: Sydney paintings from the Howard Hinton

This exhibition of paintings of Sydney places explored the mind, eye and mission of Howard Hinton, a passionate purchaser and donor of art until his death in 1948.

The paintings traversed Hinton’s beloved Sydney waterways and streetscapes, and showcased his extraordinary support of a wide range of artists. Works such as Arthur Streeton’s Sydney Harbour from Sirius Cove, 1984 and Jeffrey Smart’s Backyard Woolloomooloo, 1947 (from Hinton’s collection housed in the New England Regional Art Museum), were shown alongside paintings by Lionel Lindsay, Sydney Long, Charles Condor, Elioth Gruner, Roy de Maistre, Muril Cornish and Lloyd Rees.

In collaboration with the New England Regional Art Museum, Armidale.
