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.
