Lindsay Family Gallery

The Gallery has a long association with the Lindsay family of Creswick - five of the 10 children of Dr Robert Lindsay and his wife Jane went on to become well-recognised artists.

The Lindsay children regularly visited the Gallery with their grandfather and the Gallery had a significant influence on their later careers.

In 1966, Mary Lindsay, the last of the family to live in Creswick, bequeathed a collection of family material to the Gallery, as well as funds to acquire more Lindsay artworks. The bequest included Lindsay artworks, photographs and papers as well as the contents of the Creswick drawing room. The drawing room of the house has been recreated in the Gallery - a condition of the bequest.
