We have enjoyed this gallery on several visits, and it keeps getting better. This special exhibition, with so many paintings and posters from collections in at least 5 countries, was delightful. The audio-guides were well worth the modest charge. We find that a couple of hours at a time is as much as we can manage, so we returned next day to wander around the rest of the gallery.
One thing we had hoped, when we lost our Adelaide Gallery Director to Canberra some years ago, was that the National Gallery might one day have a restaurant approaching the high standard of Adelaide's. It hasn't happened; the run-of-the-mill food sitting in display-cases is overpriced, and the layout of the serving-space obviously makes it difficult for the staff to deal with the queues of patrons. The special tea-and-cakes area that has been provided in association with the Toulouse Lautrec exhibition, however, is certainly a cut above the routine eatery.
