New to TripShock
Duration2.5 Hrs.
Since the National Gallery of Art first opened in 1937, its collection tracing Western art from the Middle Ages to the present day has won great international acclaim. Composed of works by the greatest artists of all time, the gallery’s artifacts have been gifted, many by American financier and former Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Andrew W. Mellon. Today, this glorious art trove is brimming with Raphael, Rubens, El Greco, Rembrandt, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol. Leonardo da Vinci’s 'Gineevra de’ Benci' - dubbed Washington’s “Mona Lisa” - is also notable as the only da Vinci in all the Americas on public display. Move through the galleries and consider why certain styles proliferated at certain times and explore the impact of the socio-political climate on artistic expression. Discuss the stories that unfold on canvas as you delve into 4,000 European and American paintings, 31,000 drawings, and 3,000 sculptures plus an expansive library of 70,000 prints and 12,000 photographs. In 2014, the final tranche of Paul W. Mellon’s bequest - sixty-two glorious masterpieces by artists such as Prendergast, Magritte, Monet, Frémiet, Boudin, and Forain was welcomed to the gallery, bringing his total donation to gallery of 1,168 works since 1964.
