Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum

Located at 14 Norman Lindsay Crescent, Faulconbridge NSW 2776 The Norman Lindsay Gallery & Museum is a popular tourist attraction in the Blue Mountains, not only for the art work on display but also for the beautiful gardens, sculptures and bushwalk. Also on the property is Lindsay’s Cafe, attached to Norman Lindsay’s old etching studio.

The house and surrounding land was purchased by Lindsay and his wife, Rose, in 1913 for 500 pounds from Francis Foy who built the property in 1900 as a half-way house. The estate was repaired and transformed over the years by Lindsay, adding classical colonnades, fountains, paths and sculptures. In the late 1950s Lindsay began converting his house into a gallery to accompany all his paintings, drawings, etchings, woodcuts and ship models made throughout his life.

Lindsay remained living on the property until his death in 1969, aged 91. The oil painting studio has been preserved as it was at the time of his death with unfinished oils and materials.
