National Gallery of Victoria - Melbourne
The National Gallery of Victoria has gathered quite a collection in its 150-year history. The NGV houses over 65,000 artworks ranging from traditional15th century oil paintings to photography by Warhol and even couture from the star of this year’s L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Toni Maticevski.
Add this to the nation’s largest selection of Australian and Aboriginal Art, including many pieces from Melbourne’s own Heidelberg school, and an ever-growing selection of emerging artists, and you have an artistic hub well-deserving of its reputation as one of Australia’s finest.
A highlight of the National Gallery of Victoria’s cultural calendar is the annual ‘Winter Masterpieces’ collection, featuring works rarely seen in Australia. The exclusive-to-Melbourne event has showcased some of the biggest names in art history- from Monet to Dali.
The NGV also offers year-round talks, tours, films and public art classes aimed at cultivating young aficionados. After, feast your taste buds as well as your eyes at one of the gallery’s several cafes.
