Swinburne alumni are invited to join us for our annual NGV Breakfast with the Masters.

The seasons had profound meaning for Van Gogh: they represented the circle of life within nature – birth, bloom, maturity and death. For the artist, this ongoing cycle represented the greatness of nature and the existence of a higher force.

This exhibition, internationally exclusive to Melbourne, features works lent by leading international museums, including the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam and the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo (which respectively hold the largest and second largest collections of works by Van Gogh in the world), presented within sections devoted to each of the four seasons.

Tickets include a hot breakfast, tea/coffee and beverages in the lovely Garden Restaurant. Breakfast is followed by an introductory lecture given by an NGV educator, capturing the essence of this amazing exhibition. You'll then enjoy early entry into exhibition prior to public opening and can choose to enjoy the exhibition for the entire day.
