The world is coming to Brisbane.

Experience the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, ‘European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York’, featuring a collection of 65 works together for the first time in Australia.

From Caravaggio’s emerging Renaissance portraits, through Rembrandt’s depictions of the age of enlightenment, to the height of early twentieth century post-impressionism which saw Monet and van Gogh rise to recognition; this unparalleled collection of European master painters is only at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) until 17 October 2021.

500 years of iconic and spectacular paintings form the centrepiece of an immersive exhibition experience that will let you walk in the footsteps of Western art’s greatest painters.

Daily live music and drawing will enliven the heart of the exhibition in an enthralling experience visitors to GOMA have come to expect.

Prepare to embark on a grand tour of Europe this winter, only at GOMA.
