Seeing Sydney Harbour - The Collection of Jim Haynes OAM and Robyn McMillan

Assembled by well-known Australian writer, entertainer, broadcaster and historian Jim Haynes OAM, this group of 37 works represents an artistic history of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Each work in the collection will be accompanied by a new publication by Jim outlining the history of the Bridge through the eyes of the artists who imagined, designed and represented it. Our collection traces a century of work, from inception right up to the modern day where it sits alongside the equally iconic Sydney Opera House.
