This book contains the names and images of Indigenous people who have passed away and which may cause distress to some Indigenous people. Please note that some records contain terms, annotations and titles that reflect the period in which the item was recorded, and may be considered inappropriate today in some circumstances. These are a reflection of past practices only and do not reflect the current attitudes of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.

Note to reader

Throughout its life the NGV’s scholarly journal has been published under various names as quarterly and annual editions: Quarterly Bulletin of the National Gallery of Victoria, 1945–58; Annual Bulletin of the National Gallery of Victoria, 1959–67; Art Bulletin of Victoria, 1967–2002; Art Bulletin of the National Gallery of Victoria, 2002–10.

In 2013, we have begun the process of republishing back issues of Art Journal as electronic editions with the aim of providing long-term access to quality scholarship about the NGV collection.

We would welcome your feedback and comments about this project:


The electronic publication of the Art Journal of the National Gallery of Victoria is being made possible due to the generous ongoing support of The Vizard Foundation.
