Private Walking Tour of the National Gallery of Art

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, all the gallery’s artifacts have been gifted, many by American financier and former Ambassador to the UK, 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. Leonard da Vinci’s Ginevra de’ Benci - dubbed Washington’s “Mona Lisa” - is also notable as the only da Vinci in all the Americas on public display.

Your absorbing Private National Gallery of Art Tour is led by a respected historian to provide a rich and immersive 2.5-hour experience. As you move through the galleries, consider why certain styles proliferated at certain times, and explore the impact of the socio-political climate on artistic expression.
