Nearly 2,000 artworks by the late Brett Whiteley are to be donated to the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW).

The Wendy and Arkie Whiteley Bequest is currently valued at over $100 million, and includes a wide range of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, collages and ceramics, many of which have never been on public display.

It will be one of the largest single donations in the AGNSW’s 151-year history and among the most valuable collections of artworks ever donated to an Australian public art museum.
