The National Gallery of Art is an art museum located on the National Mall, between 3rd and 9th Streets, at Constitution Avenue NW. The National Gallery of Art contains many masterpieces of art and objects of historical significance.

Below are just some of my favourite masterpieces at the The National Gallery of Art:
