Less well known than the Golden history of Sofala, is the town’s place in Australian artistic history. Two magnificent paintings hanging in the Art Gallery of NSW are of a streetscape in Sofala. They were painted by Russell Drysdale and Donald Friend who visited the town together one day in 1947. Drysdale and Friend were friends and colleagues who had worked together for a few years since they met in 1944 when Friend heard about the quaint town of Sofala.
