Summary With the most important collection in Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria takes great pride in our mandate to collect, conserve and exhibit the art we are entrusted with. 5IF/PSUIXJOE conservation project highlights this ongoing commitment to preserving and honouring the artistic integrity of each artist. Frederick McCubbin is an artist of particular relevance to Victoria and the NGV. He was born in Melbourne in 1855 and studied at the National Gallery's School of Painting from 1877 alongside Tom Roberts. In 1885 McCubbin and Roberts began painting FOQMFJOBJS (outdoors) in the rural areas of Box Hill, Mentone and Heidelberg around Melbourne, and in doing so laid the foundations for the distinctive school of Australian Impressionism. From 1886 until his death in 1917, McCubbin returned to the National Gallery School as Master of the School of Design and Instructor of Painting, and also served briefly as Acting Director of the Gallery. He remains one of this country's most revered landscape artists.
