National Gallery of Victoria

National Gallery of Victoria

      major Australian art museum, located in Melbourne, Victoria, with collections ranging over European, Asian, and Australian art of all periods. The museum was once housed entirely in the Victorian Arts Centre, with a Great Hall featuring a dramatic stained-glass ceiling by Leonard French, a Melbourne artist. The building was designed in the late 1960s by Sir Roy Grounds. To facilitate renovation and expansion, the gallery moved in 1999 to temporary accommodations. Only the international art collections were returned to the original facility when it reopened in 2003; the Australian collection was moved nearby to the new Ian Potter Gallery.
