The Gallery’s American Collection
When the National Gallery of Art opened in 1941, its collection included fewer than a dozen historical American paintings; at present that number has grown to more than 1,000 works from the 18th through the early 20th century. Today the Gallery’s collection of American paintings—supplemented by holdings of prints, drawings, watercolors, photographs, and sculptures––is among the most distinguished anywhere.
