Hermitage

Hello!

If you’re a fan of beautiful classic artwork then a visit to the Hermitage exhibition at the NGV is a must! The exhibition is only open until the 8th of November though. Just managed to see it in time!

Masterpieces from the Hermitage: The Legacy of Catherine the Great showcases one of the world’s greatest art collections. Featuring works by artists including Rembrandt, Rubens, Velázquez and Van Dyck, the exhibition offers a dazzling array of works including the finest group of Dutch and Flemish art to come to Australia.” – NGV

It was really quite eye opening to see how much Catherine the Great valued art and modernising Russia during her 34 year reign. She collected art from all over the world. There was even a collection of precious jewellery and other artifacts from the Chinese Imperial Court. The whole exhibition made me want to visit Russia and see the Hermitage! Definitely a must see if you can get to it in time!
