Background

In 1989, Paul Galy completed a series of 12 large oil paintings, each being 2 metres x 1.25 metres in size, depicting major historical events that portray Sydney’s development over 200 years, in twenty-year leaps from 1788 to 2008.  Each painting had been extensively researched and carefully planned to be as historically accurate as possible.  The undertaking became a family project.  

The paintings were the backbone of the grander project Paul named The Australian Commemorative Series, as he planned to complete the series for the 1988 Bicentenary.  A serious accident, however, incapacitated Paul which delayed the completion until 1989.  The paintings have been exhibited a number of times in Australia, including in Waverley, Randwick, Sydney City, Blue Mountains and Yass, between 1989 and 2001. 

The paintings have been reproduced in the finest quality Limited Edition prints ready for framing, known as The Sydney Spectrum Collection. 

The ambitious project included the completion of a Limited Edition book that Paul published in Australia outlining Australia’s history, known as The Australian Commemorative Series: An Australian History Through Sydney’s Eyes.  Paul's son researched and wrote the book, each chapter providing a chronological historical account of the twenty-year period in which the historical event is set, and a detailed narrative of the historical event being depicted.
