Masterpieces… from the Collection invites visitors to explore a selection of works from Mildura Arts Centre’s founding collection, the Elliott Bequest.

Works by Degas, Brangwyn and Orpen are accompanied by that of Australian artists such as Frederick McCubbin and as well as the screening of An Improbable Collection, a half-hour documentary film by the renowned film director, Bruce Beresford and photographer Cordelia Beresford, inspired by works from the Mildura Arts Centre Collection.
