Norman Lindsay – Blue Mountains – Faulconbridge 2

The Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum is in a beautiful bush setting at Faulconbridge in the Lower Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

The garden surrounding the house has ancient Greek and Roman features with paths going off into the bush. Sculptures by Norman Lindsay are dotted around the garden. The interior of the house is now a gallery displaying Lindsay’s paintings which are mostly sumptuous nudes in the European style which were hugely controversial when first displayed in the 1930s.
