The Collection

A significant part of Arthur and Yvonne Boyd's 1993 gift of Bundanon was an extensive collection of artworks by Arthur Boyd, his family and peers. The collection now also includes contemporary work by artists in residence.


The art collection comprises over 3,800 items with more than 1,300 works by Arthur Boyd, over 1,200 works from five generations of the Boyd family dynasty and a number of works by Arthur Boyd's contemporaries, such as Sidney Nolan, John Perceval, Joy Hester and Charles Blackman. Donations from past artists in residence also form a significant part of the collection.

Homestead & Studio

Hundreds of artworks from the Trust's collection can be viewed every Sunday in the Bundanon Homestead and in Arthur Boyd's Studio, set in the context of the Shoalhaven landscape which inspired so much of Boyd's work.
