The Foundation was formed in 1971 from the artist’s bequest with instructions that “a Foundation be established for the benefit and promotion of art in NSW."
The Foundation has sponsored a wide variety of projects since then, establishing art exhibitions, funding publications and acquisitions, supporting educational projects, art schools and scholarships and has made possible major public art commissions.
