Curatorial Records

For the well-being of our visitors and staff, the library and its image collections, the print and drawing study rooms, the photograph study room, curatorial records, and Gallery Archives are temporarily closed to the public. We will gladly respond to research inquiries by email, telephone, and regular mail. 

The Department of Curatorial Records maintains the curatorial files for paintings, sculptures, and decorative arts in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art.

Curatorial records staff respond to research inquiries specific to the collections of the National Gallery of Art and provide additional information about documents in the curatorial files. Questions about collection information or requests for searches more complicated than those possible through the web site may also be directed to this office.
