Mildura Arts Centre Collection

The permanent collection referred to as one of Victoria’s best kept secrets, the foundation bequest of Senator RD Elliott and Mrs Hilda Elliott includes the largest single collection of paintings by Anglo-Irish artist Sir William Orpen. Visitors are astonished to find a pastel by Edgar Degas, Femme à la baignoire se coiffant, as well as works by Sir Frank Brangwyn and a number of important Australian artists.

Mildura Arts Centre has a rotating program of diverse exhibitions. For this reason, artworks from the Collection are not on continuous display but instead may be included in our regularly changing curated displays. To avoid the disappointment of not seeing a particular work from our Collection, we recommend contacting us prior to your visit.
