Caring for the NGV Collection is essential to ensuring that our treasures can be enjoyed well into the future.

The NGV’s world-class conservation team is dedicated to the care and longevity of works of art in all media, including fashion and textiles, photography, frames and sculpture. Conservation projects range in scale from large to small and include the restoration of Tiepolo’s iconic The Banquet of Cleopatra, 1743–44, to Emil Todt’s exceptionally fragile sculpture of the Victorian Gold Rush, The gold diggers, 1854.

Your support will enable this vital work to continue and will provide crucial funds towards key conservation projects, the acquisition and maintenance of analytical equipment, and enable experimental research to develop more effective and efficient preservation programs.
