History of the Norman Lindsay Gallery
The former Lindsay home in Faulconbridge has so many stories, and all of them weave into the rich fabric of Australian post-World War I identity, cultural heritage, art and literature and the story of the Blue Mountains. Never one to shy away from controversy, artist and author Norman Lindsay shared this beautiful sandstone home with his wife Rose and their children.
What will you see when you visit
The house now showcases Norman Lindsay’s many paintings depicting Bohemianism and Arcadian pantheism, his sculptures can be found in the sprawling gardens that wrap around his former home. You will see sculptures, illustrations and see the cheeky characters of the children’s classic, The Magic Pudding, were created.
Discover the stories of Lindsay’s scandalous rejection of Christianity – with his works deemed blasphemous and his novel, Redheap, banned in 1930.
The Norman Lindsay Gallery is available to book for weddings, special occasions and private functions. The scene for many films, television programs and photographic shoots, we are happy to provide a stage for continued storytelling to the next generation.
