Villa Alba Museum, Melbourne

Today I visited the Villa Alba Museum in Kew Melbourne.   Such a gracious old building now undergoing repairs.  One of the great features is the fact that many of the walls had large paintings on them,  painted directly on the wall.  Unfortunately at some stage an owner of the building painted over all of them.  Now restoration is underway a painstaking process as the old paint has to be carefully removed so as to preserve the old works underneath.  This work along with restoration of the structure from cracks etc means that it will be some time before the building is back to its old glory.  

 

So if you are in Melbourne on the first Sunday of a month then take the time to visit and see what it has to offer. In the mean time here are a few photographs from the day.

 

Enjoy.
