The National Gallery of Victoria, popularly known as NGV, is an art gallery and museum in Melbourne, Australia. Founded in 1861, it is the oldest and the largest public art gallery in Australia. The NGV operates across two sites: NGV International, located on St Kilda Road in the heart of the Melbourne Arts Precinct of Southbank, and The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, located nearby at Federation Square.

The St Kilda Road building, designed by Sir Roy Grounds, opened in 1968, and was renovated by Mario Bellini and reopened in 2003. There is a beautiful sculpture garden in the Gallery, in which this mosaic mural is found.

Henry Moore's "Draped Seated Woman" of 1957-58, with the mosaic in the background, a recreation of Fernand Léger's "Grand Parade with Red Background" made in 1985. More photos of the gallery and its collection may be found in my other blog.

This post is part of the Mosaic Monday meme,
and also part of the Ruby Tuesday meme,
and also part of the Seasons meme.


  1. Wonderful art from your museum. Happy Mosaic Monday.
    I am at #11 on the liny today

    much love...

  2. When growing up in Holland, there was a park in Antwerp (Belgium, about 11/2 hrs. from where I lived) that had a park with Henri Moore's statues. Those were my beginnings of love for abstract art. Many thanks for sharing this statue with All Seasons!
    Another matter: with the new editor from wordpress, my perma links suddenly do not work anymore for the photo links at blogspot (Sunday Best).Sorry, wished I was more skilled in these things.Have a great week, Jesh

  3. That's quite a mosaic. I love a parade! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!
