“I love this expressionist painting by Maxwell Bates especially the way the colours and textures both compliment and contrast each other. Every brushstroke on the canvas is so unique and shapes this gorgeous painting that Bates created. The AGA's permanent collection has such wonderful surprises, there's always a painting or piece of art that captures my attention. And, when I visit the AGA with my little ones, they love to discover and explore the gallery spaces and are fascinated with all the different artworks on the walls.”
