About

Make your way to the National Gallery of Art, where this tour begins, and meet a guide and group that’s limited to 8 people for a personal experience of the museum.
See each piece in context as you follow a carefully-designed route to the most important works in the gallery. Take in masterpieces by Leonardo da Vinci and Edward Degas, whose ‘Little Dancer’ is among the museum’s most beloved works. Highlights also include ‘Self Portrait’ by Vincent van Gogh, ‘Alba Madonna’ by Raphael, and Titian’s ‘Venus with a Mirror.’
Examine Gilbert Stuart’s portrait of George Washington, and Clause Monet’s ‘Woman with a Parasol,’ a romantic favorite among Impressionist paintings. Discuss the techniques used to create these important works, and learn the history of the museum itself, which grew from a near-empty building to a world-class museum in fewer than 100 years.
This 2.5-hour National Gallery of Art tour concludes at the museum, which you can continue to explore on your own.

Itinerary

Enter the National Gallery of Art and follow your guide through one of America’s best collections of artwork produced by Renaissance artists, French Impressionists, and great American painters. See works from Claude Monet, Raphael, Gilbert Stuart, and Edgar Degas, as well as more modern artists like Picasso, Pollock, Warhol, and O’Keefe, as you learn what’s really behind the creation of some of these pieces. Your guide will lead the way through the halls of the museum, telling stories, and stopping at famous works of art. Some pieces you’ll see on this tour include “Ginevra de’Benci” by Leonardo da Vinci, “Self Portrait” by Vincent Van Gogh, and “Woman with a Parasol” by Claude Monet. Listen as your guide fills you in on the techniques behind some of the paintings, as well as some of the history and scandals that happened because of them. You’ll also learn about the museum’s building which took just 100 years to transition from a nearly hollow building to the home of the US’s best art collections.
