The national art collection is a unique and valuable resource that is for the enjoyment of all Australians and visitors, now and for generations to come.
It holds the largest and most comprehensive collection of Australian art and the largest collection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in the world. It also includes art from the Asia-Pacific region (particularly India and Southeast Asia), and the nation's most significant collection of modern European and American art.
The National Gallery of Australia was set up to complement the existing state and regional collections, and is unique amongst Australian state and international galleries: our recent history and Indigenous past give the National Gallery of Australia its points of difference and future direction.
The support of generous and dedicated benefactors to help us continue to develop the national art collection is of the utmost importance.
