The Dunedin Public Art Gallery has lovely exhibit spaces. The shell of an original municipal building has been paired with a sweeping, modern, glass facade. The collection includes European masters Monet, Turner, and Gainsborough, as well as New Zealand and Otago artists. A special gallery highlights Dunedin native Frances Hodgkins, whose work won acclaim in the 1930s and '40s. Hodgkins's style changed through her career, but some of her most distinctive works are postimpressionist watercolors.
