The Leonard French stained glass ceiling in The Great Hall of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, Australia, measures 60.9 m in length, 15.24m in width and 13.72m in height and took five years to build. It is best viewed – and encouraged – by lying on the ground and facing it !!
In 1986, the NGV grabbed global headlines when Pablo Picasso’s Weeping Woman was stolen by a group identifying themselves as the “Australian Cultural Terrorists” to protest poor treatment of the arts by the Victorian government of the day. A week following the theft, the painting was discovered in a railway locker, however those responsible have never been found.
