From our team here at NGV, we’re sending our best wishes to our community during this challenging time.
Following the latest public health directions from the Victorian Government, the NGV is temporarily closed to the public.
We encourage you to visit our website and follow our social media for updates.
We are grateful for the loyalty and understanding of the NGV community and hope to welcome you back soon.
What’s in a portrait? What do portraits tell us about people and the times they lived in? What does the appearance of a sitter reveal about what they might be thinking or feeling? Why is it important that artists make portraits of people? View and discuss historical and contemporary portraits from across the NGV Collection.
