The Royal Perth Hospital art collection is the largest hospital collection in Australia. More than 1000 paintings, drawings and wall-based sculptural works are on display throughout the Wellington Street and Shenton Park campuses.

Royal Perth Hospital Art Committee member Dr Barry Walters said sensory stimulation was important for patients, and that art could play a positive role in healing.

Dr Walters said the artworks around the walls of our hospital provide patients and visitors with an opportunity to enjoy something of their surroundings – a pause in their hospital experience.

Among the most recognised pieces that make up the collection are works by:

Rupert Bunny
Sir Arthur Streeton
Norman Lindsay
Arthur Boyd
Kathleen O’Connor
Albert Namatjira
Charles Blackman
Jeffrey Smart
Howard Taylor
Robert Juniper
Guy Grey-Smith
Rover Thomas
Theo Koning
Ronnie Tjampatjimpa
Julie Dowling
Max Pam

Great company to be in, my thanks to Lance Hyde and the hospital. I’m sure having a fluorescent pink dingo nearby will make you feel much better very soon!
