Established by:
The Rotary Club of Heidelberg

The Heidelberg School was the first major artistic movement in Australia and the notoriety of its exponents extends to the international stage. Impressionist in nature, it had a tremendous impact on the history of Australian art in general and landscape painting in particular. It comprised some of the most prominent painters in Australia ’s history: Arthur Streeton, Walter Withers, Tom Roberts, Charles Conder and Frederick McCubbin to name but a few.

The Foundation proposes to establish a Gallery & Museum within the city of Heidelberg , dedicated to the Heidelberg School of Art.
