European Masters is leaving Melbourne

In just over three weeks, this year’s exceptionally popular Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, European Masters: Städel Museum 19th – 20th Century will leave Melbourne.  

The exhibition must close at 6pm on Sunday 10 October 2010, with last ticket sales at 4.30pm.

Gerard Vaughan, Director, NGV, urged people to take this once-in-a-life-time opportunity to see these works that rarely travel outside Europe.

“Over 160,000 people have already seen European Masters since it opened in June. The Gallery is buzzing with visitors enjoying the superb selection of pictures on display,” said Dr Vaughan.

To celebrate this success, the NGV will stay open until 9pm on Wednesday 6 October, Thursday 7 October, Friday 8 October and until midnight on Saturday 9 October!

An exciting range of programs will accompany the late night openings. Performance highlights for art after dark include:

Wednesday 6 October open until 9pm

Travel to Europe of the 1920s as we immerse you in the sophisticated world of German Cabaret.

Friday 8 October open until 9pm
