Architectural plan for the National Art Gallery of New South Wales proposed completed scheme, alternate design, showing west and east elevations

Location
Not on display
Further information

The west elevation of the Gallery, to designs by Government Architect Walter Liberty Vernon, was completed and stands today as shown on this plan by Vernon. The one major variation, however, was that an open loggia was incorporated on the far left of the design. Only the left hand portion of the east elevation was completed. Interestingly, this plan shows designs for bas relief panels not only on the front of the Gallery but also on its rear.
