One of the travels I had last year was to Heidelburg to visit the Heide Museum of Modern Art.
Not looking too much like a museum but this is the original residence of Sunday and John Reed who donated this house, their new house and the surrounding land as the Heide Museum of Modern Art. You can read the fascinating story of John and Sunday Reed here. In 2013 I did a post about a book I had read called Autumn Laing by Alex Miller. There is a link to Sunday Reed and Sidney Nolan in that novel.
My elder daughter took me to the museum as there was an exhibition of art by Margaret Preston, Grace Cossington-Smith and Georgia O’Keefe during the holidays.
I have always liked Margaret Preston’s art and I made sure that I bought a print for framing when I got home. It is in my “to do” pile.
In the original homestead there were paintings by Charles Blackman, another of my favourites, from his Alice in Wonderland series.
and an operational vegetable garden that provides much of the produce for the cafe.
This museum is well worth a visit if you are near Heidelberg in Melbourne.
