National Gallery of Victoria’s ‘Monet’s Garden’ has been announced as the most popular Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series since the inaugural series in 2004.

In total, 342,029 people visited the exhibition, which opened in May and finished on September 8.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Louise Asher said the success of Monet’s Garden further proved the value of the Melbourne Winter Masterpiece series to Victoria’s economy.

“The Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series has once again proven to be a strong tourism draw card and leading major event on the calendar. I look forward to welcoming the 2014 series exhibitions to Melbourne,” Minister Asher said.

NGV director Tony Ellwood said the exhibition was a hit from day one.

“From the moment the exhibition opened in May, visitors of all ages across Victoria and indeed Australia, have enjoyed the exhibition and the programming events,” Mr Ellwood said.

“One of the most successful events was ‘Friday Nights at Monet’s Garden’ (pictured above) which had an overwhelming response and we look forward to launching similar events throughout summer,” he added.
