Since it was founded in 1861, the National Gallery of Victoria has been busy amassing the best art from Australia and all across the world. Now, after a century and a half of collecting, the gallery has arguably the country's most significant collection of art, ranging from milestone European works from every major artistic movement to contemporary masterpieces by Australia's finest.
We asked the NGV's curatorial team to pick ten works that Melburnians should familiarise themselves with, from across the collection's whole spectrum. You can see them at both of the gallery's major spaces: NGV International on St Kilda Road and NGV Australia at Federation Square.
