Central Leader - - News -

Auck­land res­i­dents will get an exclusive preview of the Ju­lian and Josie Robert­son Promised Gift ex­hi­bi­tion at Auck­land Art Gallery next month.

In May this year the gallery an­nounced a gift of 15 works from New York art col­lec­tors and phi­lan­thropists Ju­lian and Josie Robert­son.

The col­lec­tion is the most gen­er­ous gift of its kind in Aus­tralia or New Zealand and in­cludes paint­ings by Cezanne, Pablo Pi­casso, Gau­guin and Mon­drian.

A suite of rooms in the newly re­de­vel­oped art gallery’s 1887 Kitch­ener wing will be named the Juilan and Josie Robert­son Gal­leries.

Five of the works will be on show in a free ex­hi­bi­tion from Novem­ber 7 to 13 at the New Gallery on the cor­ner of Kitch­ener and Lorne streets.

The preview will in­clude pieces by Pi­casso, Ge­orge Braque, Henry Matisse, An­dre Derain and Sal­vador Dali.
